Christmas Punch (alcohol free)

I've made this card for the challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges #22 There is no set topic for these challenges but there is always an option for you to use.  The option this time is to use punches, hence the title of my post lol

I am also entering it into the Crafty Sentiments Designs challenge which is for spots or stripes

I was a bit unsure of this card to start with but I think that it's getting better each time I look at it

Kraft card is lovely with the traditional Christmas colours.  I edged the card with a brown ink pad and the paper with green.  I made the edge darker on the bottom left hand corner of the topper to add a bit more depth

The trees were not meant to be offset.  I punched the centre tree and then the next one wasn't where it should have been so I punched the others to correspond!  

Materials used

Punch by X-Cut
Paper and tree topper from HOTP
Memento ink pads
Anita's peeloff border
3D foam pads
