Festive Trees make a Merry Christmas

Happy Monday?! Hopefully it is, I've got a lot to do today before I head off to work... always the procrastinator - I wish they had a pill for that! So, I'm going to make today's post short and sweet so I can get to it!!
Today's card is really quite simple to make. I used the Decorative Mask from the Hearts & Stars. I used the same colour ink as my cardstock layer - Cherry Cobbler for a tone-on-tone look. I stamped the trees from the Festival of Trees set - the one with the ornaments. It's a pretty 2-step stamp set. I used Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler ink - it's hard to see in the photo but I added some silver Dazzling Details to the remaining white spaces to look like ornaments. I stamped the cardinal and fussy cut him out, then punched out some Gold Glimmer stars for the tops to my trees. Before assembling the entire card, I first stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas" at the bottom from the Sassy Salutations set using Black ink. The first tree fit nicely into the gap right above the "r" in the Christmas. I spritzed the whole card with Vanilla Smooch Spritz to add some shimmer. Well, that's it for today, I hope you enjoy your day!!
