O Christmas Tree!

Okay so maybe I'm a little ahead of myself with the Christmas music. But I started making my Christmas cards in January of last year. I was trying to make a dozen each month so that by November, I was ready to just sign, address, and mail.
Nice thought, but once warm weather hit, that sort of went out the window. I have 3 dozen done and just received this new stamp set from Flourishes last week. So I was playing around with ideas. Not my favorite, but okay for those I-haven't-seen-you-in-years-but-I-still-send-a-card-for-old-times-sake people, KWIM?
Dark Chocolate, Pure Poppy and Rustic Cream PTI cardstock; Handsome Hunter SU cardstock; Zing dark green, silver, and red embossing powders; Snow White PTI ink; PTI sentiment; rhinestones cut from a Michael's $1 bin rhinestone word; and Offray Ribbon outlet unknown red ribbon.
Only 119 days until Christmas. ;-)
