Swirly Christmas Trees

After I made this card, I had the dotted tree (below) left over. I tried it over olive green cardstock, and I liked the looks of it. So I made four more cards. Three are like the above card, and then the one below. For the top one, I cut the tree (Memory Box die) out of a shiny pewter cardstock. Then I cut the tree out of white. I matted the white with the olive green and then glued the tree back in the opening. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
I am linking these cards up to the Christmas Card Challenge blog. The optional challenge this week is a photo inspiration, but the only real challenge is to make a Christmas card.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Hi Lynette,
What machine did you use to die cut the tree? Lovely cards as usual!

I love both! Very cool die, and you know how I love my dies. The second one looks almost like it has flecks of now on it. I like how you inset the trees.
