I felt the tree shape need to be more defined. Therefore, I cut a piece of clear plastic to create a stencil of the basic tree shape and adding a trunk. I placed the stencil on the DSP and sponged brown ink inside the shape and brushed the edges of the DSP rectangle as well. I adhered the die cut over the stenciled area.
I cut an extra large star and one of the small star from bright green card stock. I adhered the large one offset from the original one at the top of the tree and the tiny one was adhered right over the "i" in Christmas.
The designer paper was adhered to the warm taupe card.
