The card is made up of 4 unique Christmas trees.

Strangely enough my favorite thing about this card was an afterthought.  I had finished with the card when I realized that I hadn't added any spot to actually write a letter.  LOL  The scrapbook paper I used for the Christmas tree was far to dark to write a letter on.

That's when I came up with the idea of adding a ribbon that goes around the tree.  Not only did it give me a place to write, but I think it looks great!  I made the ribbon by punching half scalloped circles and then punching inside those circles again.  This gave me double scalloped half circles that I cut to fit my tree.

I'm sure that Tyler will love his card.

Have a great day and happy scrapbooking!
