This first one was my first try and when I showed my husband he said it needed more "3-d ness" to it....and that the trees were a little tight together. He was right but it was my 1st try, KWIM, so as I was putting the trees down, and I saw that they were too close it was too late to change it since they were already stuck. I use Tombow Mono-Multi glue and there is no turing back with that stuff! Once it's down it's down forever!
So, for my 2nd card I planned the layout a little better and spaced the trees out and put some under the front layer of "ground" to give it that "3-d ness" that was suggested. I also used the pretty Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper that I have been holding onto for "later" that I got at Jacksonbelle's and some silver diamond shaped brads that I thought I would never use for anything.
I think this 2nd card came out much better than the 1st, don't you?
I think I only have about 20 more Christmas cards to make. I am going to try to get them all done this weekend so I don't have to think about Christmas cards anymore this year!! Except for the cards I recieve, of course!
