You then just build up your image by sticking each tree and placed the 1st cut tree 
On the top giving it the Camouflage/dimention look

Gorgeous Christmas card, the colour makes me think about Ginger bread biscuits, we always have them for Christmas here in Sweden and they do come in different shapes like Christmas trees.

Happy Easter sweetie!

Hi Sandra! I am so happy to be visiting you tonight! Thank you for sticking with me while I was away for so long. My mom is recovering well and I'll be back to crafty Blogger fun next week. I've noticed your blog hasn't been super active... I hope you're doing okay. **hugs**

Your card is delightful as ever! Your snow effect is beautiful and I love the tree and garland. Such a darling image, too! Wonderfully designed as always, my friend. I missed you and your creations dearly.

Hugs and blessings,
