Patterned Pines Christmas Card

All supplies used (other than the stars)
came from Stampin' Up! over the years.

I could've made a simpler version of this card
by simply stamping the pine images directly
to the white piece of card stock.
The stamp image is of the three trees in a row,
next to each other, not overlapping.  
(Patterned Pines)

I decided it needed to be a bit fancier,
so I stamped the trees in different colors ,
even stamping the trunks again in brown.
I then cut them out individually
so I could glue them overlapping each other.

I added a die cut squiggly lines element
to represent snow drifts.

I lightly sponged blue ink onto the sky.

The sentiment stamp is colored with water based
markers directly onto the rubber to create the two tone image.
It is cut into a banner then glued onto to card
with a shim of chipboard for a bit of dimension.

The star elements are unknown.
I know that they were bought at a going
out of business sale (Kmart) years ago
and sold as a Christmas item for gift packaging.

A wood grain textured background 
finishes off the card front.

Thanks for looking =)
