Merry Christmas die cut and trees card

Hello again!  

Thanks for visiting tonight, tonight I have a cute card that came together accidentally!  I cut out the Merry Christmas from a Simon Says Stamp die and wanted to use it, but couldn't figure out what I wanted to do.  Then I saw these trees from a Hero Arts set that I had triple clear embossed to  make them very shiny, plus some extra scallop punch pieces that were in a scrap pile, and I started playing around and came up with this::

The green dot paper is a scrap, and I just mounted everything on a red top folding card and Voila!  I ran the Merry Christmas die cut through my Xyron instead of gluing it.  Much easier!  

Here's another close up of the trees.  I stamped them with green pigment ink and clear embossed them 3 times so they have a 'laquered' look.  Then I cut them out.  I added some red gems as ornaments.  

I'd say for an accident card, it turned out really cute!  :)

Please be sure to 'follow me', too, so you don't miss out on any updates!  :)

See ya tomorrow!  :)
