A5 Christmas card

Good morning everyone I hope you are well or at least getting there...hugs
Thank you for all the lovely messages about my shoulder pain, I really appreciate them.

My card for today is a tad larger than my usual 7x5. I wasn't too sure about it at first but it has grown on me now  :o)

I embossed the trees with TH emb folder and found that the embossing didn't show up on the green glittercard, so what to do with them?
I decided to hand cut them so at least we can see the shape of the trees, but then they were too big for a 7x5 card!!!
After some deliberation and lots of placing and moving them around this is the result.
Papermill Direct white linen card folded to A5.
pearlised card embossed with (no name) embossing folder then layered onto plain greed card from PDA, which was in turn layered onto the card base.TH trees and Memory Box glued on, then Woodware sentiment added, and that's all there is to this very simple card folks :o)
