The Christmas cards I was sent or were given to me last year were beautiful, upcycling them has helped me get ahead on my Christmas cards, although I have lost my way with the monthly themes. Sorry!

Row of Presents
Upcycled Vintage Santa
Upcycled Snowy Scene
Sparkly Christmas

Great card! I might be done, but chances are I won't like any of my cards when December finally rolls around!

Great idea to do multiples of a design you like...especially the idea about changing the backgound paper which makes it new and different!

How funny. I just uploaded this card, and when I went to the gallery I saw the same image on the last card I uploaded, 3 months ago. I've been busy moving house and got way behind. The image was already colored, so I guess I colored them at the same time.
Anyway, I'm trying to get slowly back on track with the crafting and hope to catch up on CCC.

I think in my opinion is that those lovely trees are not popping off the page they are blending in with the bg.

I too love all the elements you have on the card, the trees are incredible!!

If it were me I would place a darker panel behind the trees, and place the star cs on a darker cs bg too!!

You could glue those trees to a darker card stock and just trim around each tree leaving about an eighth inch border around each one!
