Row of Trees Merry Christmas Kickstand Card

I made this gingerbread card a while back and said at the time I wanted to make a trees version and here it is!  I've used the same size card and layout but with the different colours and images I've got a whole different feel to this card.  While the gingerbread card is fun and playful, I feel this trees version is more grown up and sophisticated!  I added Star Dust Stickles to the dots on the trees and I topped each tree with a holographic sequin with a jewel in the centre.  The sentiment label also had some bling added and I popped the label up.

Here's the inside.

And here's the envelope.  I just love that non traditional Christmas patterned paper, what a gorgeous colour and design!

Beautiful Ruth. That purple paper is gorgeous and I adore how you have matched the envelope. What a joy it will be for the person who receives this!
