The first card uses the three shades of aqua/teal in my crafty hoard, and isn't that the bee's knees? Aqua and red on a Christmas card is retro-ish fun. These three trees climb up a hill because of masking. Making mask for triangles is so hard! It took me hours.

Here, I took the three trees on the horizontal and gave them a bit more breathing room and two shades of green (isn't the lime fun!). There's an extra white mat on this one because the wide, plain edge looked strange with so much going on. The tiny bit of added detail worked well.
At least, I think so. You are, of course, entitled to your opinion.

Finally, an almost one-layer card. The tree is popped up after having been sponged with two cheerful shades of green and cut out. The text on the trees blends into the sentiment underneath, creating unity. The star needs no reason.
One more Christmas set used! Yay!
