Michael Strong Card of the Day - Tuesday

Here are a few more Christmas cards.  For both these cards I took Mike's largest Christmas Tree die cut and cut out a scrap piece of paper so I had a stencil of the outline of the tree.  I covered up the holes and then used this stencil to sponge ink (Tumbled Glass) onto the white card stock so I had a large tree sponged on it. 

For this tree I took away the stencil and then stamped (in Broken China) the second largest and smallest tree on top of the sponging.  I stamped a third smaller tree behind without reinking so it's a bit more faded but that way I didn't have to mask the other trees.  I sponged all around the edges and added the sentiment.  Then I put on a couple of pearls, misted with some shimmer mist and added a ribbon.
