Reflective Festive Trees

Okay, so I know that Christmas is over but I have some projects that I haven't shared yet. So, today I'm sharing THREE of the projects that I created a few weeks ago... they are some of my favourite Christmas cards that I made!! I love the festival of trees set, that's no secret... especially the tree image that I chose for the first card.

I stamped the tree three times face up, then flipped it to stamp it three times upside down. I added some snowflakes from the Many Merry Stars set from the Holiday Supplement catalogue, the 'tis the season sentiment is from the same set. The tiny snowflakes are from the Holiday Home set. To finish off the card, I added some Rhinestones and some glimmer paper.
My next card I made longer 8" X 4" - score at 4". I used Basic Black and Bermuda Bay cardstock. The trees this time I chose the filigree tree. Since the card was longer, I was able to fit 5 trees. I used the Silver Encore ink and I love the silver on the black.
 I used the Mingle All the Way - but I fussy cut around the 'Holiday Cheer' portion of the stamp set.
I was happy with how the Black and Silver version turned out, I tried with anther dark cardstock - Blackberry Bliss. I stamped the  JOY from the 'Get your Santa on' set, and fussy cut it out to make a banner in the center of my card.  
I added some Champagne glimmer stars - the champagne colour and Blackberry Bliss go nicely together. To finish the card, I added some Basic Black Baker's Twine bows to the ends of the joy banner.
I'm off to work, I have another sneak peek tomorrow featuring NEW products.
I hope you'll check back then :)
