Trio of Trees!

Hi there my crafty friends!
I have a trio of cards to share with you today using this super cool stamp set called, Abstract Christmas.   I wanted to play around with the colors a bit and see how many different looks I could get. 
This first card uses the very traditional color scheme of red and green. 
The tree was colored with Copic markers and cut out using coordinating die.  I covered the entire thing with glossy accents.  Once it was dry, I couldn't leave well enough alone, so I added Stickles Glitter glue on top of several circles. 
The background was done  with green Tim Holtz ink. The "snowflakes" were added with the Polka Dot stencil and texture paste.  The sentiment was done using the Christmas Mini Tag Sentiments set. I added white ribbon tied with jingle bells.  Lastly, I adhered a few coordinating sequins.  
For my next card I used various pastel shades of Copic markers to make a softer version of the card above.  
For my last card I used shades of red and aqua.  There is something about this color scheme that says "retro" to me.   
Here is a last look at all 3 cards!
Thank you for stopping by today!
