Christmas Palm Trees ~ BLOG CANDY!!!

This is one of the few Christmas cards that I made this past Christmas.  It was a card for my husband's boss and he LOVED it.  He and his wife love tropical locations so I decided on palm trees.   I cut the trees from the Dinosaur Tracks cardridge at 4" and 4 1/2".  The larger was cut using the 'flip' function. 

I cut doubles of the palms and glued one of each onto the tree cut and then the top layers, I embossed with the Tim Holtz Burlap embossing folder and then inked them with Color Box Pheasant Gold stamp pad.   I had the mini Christmas light strands in a roll so, I cut them down and then taped and glued them to the trees.

The palm trees are mounted onto printed paper from the DCWV 'The Christmas Stack' and the sentiment is from TPC Studios.  
The inside sentiment is from another TCP stamp set and a strip of the mat paper.  A tip when you're using 3D elements, make sure that the envelope is a bit larger than the card so that the card will fit without tearing!!
