Merry Christmas!! It's Xmas in July! Christmas Tree Card

My goal for Christmas cards this year is to make them flat! This is super hard for me since I like to add lots of ribbon and layers. Last year I needed 2 stamps for every card I mailed out! So this year, I am trying hard to make them flat, but still have my style! I resisted and did not use any pop dots on this, but I was still able to add a few layers and texture using an embossing folder.

Paper from Recollections All Seasons Pack
