Christmas Card Club- Mixed Media Trees

So, my second time of taking part, and I'm already late! I totally lost track of the days, and between hospital appointments and our weekend WOYWW crop meeting, only realised today I should have a card ready! This fortnights choice of brief was from Mary, Mixed Media trees.
Cue panic at this end!
 In the end, I used some mixed media, and some trees, and hopefully thats ok.

I started off using one of my offcuts I sorted recently, and taped it down using masking tape to give me a border. The Stencil is a Tim Holtz one, called Latticework.

Using some Cosmic Shimmer Glitter paste, in Warm Gold,  I just partially added it to the top right of the cardstock. Removed the stencil and put the card to one side to dry.
 Went off for hospital appointment! 😀

 By the time we got back it had dried, and I trimmed it square, then matted it onto some dark green cardstock. I cut two of Tims Woodland Trees Thinlits dies from the same cardstock.

Added the panel to a 6" square card base with DST.

Stuck the trees down with a glue stick, and put some weight on top to make sure they stuck. Went off for a coffee.😉

Next it needed a sentiment, so I chose one from a Phill Martin set, Scribbled Christmas Petite Sentiments, and Memento ink in Olive Grove to more or less match the trees and matt layer.
 So thats my card for this challenge, I shall try to be more on time with the next one. 😇

Love the simplicity of it.. almost like a mountain blocking out the glittery sky with trees growing on it :)

This is a perfect Mixed Media, and just stunning! Love the shimmering golden corner, and that's a very pretty stencil design too. Love those trees....(I bought that die after seeing a friend use it to cut shimmerz sheet...which are a sort of metallic mylar composition, and wafer dies do not like it). You did a wonderful mixed media Christmas card...very beautiful, and worth the wait too! Hugs & TFS
