Forest of Tree Cards

Continuing on with the new Tree-mendous prompt for the Rogue Redhead Designs Holiday Inspiration Club, I had some fun with the silhouette Christmas tree from the RRD Christmas Cheer plate.

For this first one, I created a simple card with a focus on the tree.  I coordinated some Stampin' Up River Rock cardstock and some deep greens for a soft feel.  To create more interest in the tree, I added a background behind it in a lighter color ink.

I liked the way it looked so I decided to go simple with a one-layer blocked color design in similar shades of yellow-green.  I love repetition.

For my last one, I decided again on a one-layer card with a little nice repetition.  This time I stamped the Christmas tree at different levels and then used a sheet of ripped scrap paper to create some lovely frosty-blue hills.  I added three levels of hills to mirror the three trees.

I had a lot of fun with the different ways to play with this simple tree.  I hope you can come and play with us too!  Check out the HIC post for February and link up your own take on Tree-mendous!
