O Christmas Tree{s}

It's not too early to get a start on Christmas cards!  We're already more than halfway through this year (yikes!), and Christmas will be here before you know it.

My inspiration for this card is the song, O Christmas Tree. I used a musical note background stamp from Skipping Stones Design on a kraft card base. Then, I built a little 'forest' of gilded trees on top of an embossed oval.

The trees are from both Hero Arts Merry Christmas Trees and Stampin' Up!'s Patterned Pines.

The gilding comes in the form of gold Smooch ink, some golden sequins, and a gold-embossed star.

Stamps: Timeless Texture background - Skipping Stone Design; Merry Christmas Trees - Hero Arts; Patterned Pines - Stampin' Up! Accessories & Tools: gold sequins, gold embossing powder, Holiday Frame embossing folder  - Stampin' Up!; Gold Smooch Ink; Copic markers

O so pretty -- love the array of patterned trees and musical background. The gold adds a nice touch of elegance.

Gorgeous rustic Christmas Card Colleen! Your work is always so inspiring!
To answer your question on my blog:
The flowers are Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge cutouts. After I rolled the flower I added a flower stamen in the middle.

You're right, it's never too early and I should get started, but just can't seem to get there. Love the music background on this, especially in the brown on kraft. I always love a cluster of simple trees like this, too.
