Die cut Christmas Scene

Good evening peeps.
It's time for a brand new challenge over at HLS Anything Goes with Dies. As Christmas is fast approaching I thought I would make a Christmas card.

The only thing not die cut on this is the sentiment!

I started by making the trees by stacking various green die cut rectangle frames inside one another on a scrap of paper, then cutting a tree shape with a Sizzix die set. A small scrap of brown was snipped into shape for the trunk. 
The sky was cut using a friends snowflake plate die and then inking with Salty Ocean DI. Snow drifts cut with a Lawn Fawn die filled the bottom of the background. On a separate panel slightly smaller than the base, I die cut another rectangle to create a frame for the scene. The trees were then placed into the snowy scene and a sentiment stamped in black completes.

For more die cut inspiration check out the rest of the team here and why not join in.
