Christmas Tree Die-namic

Last Christmas cards before Christmas Day where I got 2 cards using the Christmas Tree Cutout. One came out traditional and the other one more of a vintage look with the sheet music background. 

First I stamped a background using the Sheet Music Background stamp onto Primitive Cream card stock and used Walnut Stain distress around the edges and did my first cut which is the card below. 

Since I had the reminder of the music sheet, I didn't want it to go to waste so I made another one Christmas card but forgot to distress around it before layering it in which is pictured above. Added 5/8" Gold Satin Ribbon and snowflake sequins to finish it off.

This card uses Primitive Cream, Berrylicious cardstock, Silver paper, and lots of sequins. Added a nice size green bow 5/8" Satin Green to finish it off. I'm going to try and take a picture of this card outside during the day to see if it comes out better since it's hard to photograph the silver.
