Tree Builder Christmas Swag

My apologies for the lack of posts. I had intended to post sooner this week but we've been hit with two severe thunderstorms that resulted in a lot of hail, flash floods and power outages.
Yesterday I almost didn't make it home as I had to drive through a foot of water to try and merge onto the freeway.

Now on to my card.
After creating a rustic looking branch wreath with the tree builder punch I wondered if I could also turn it into a pine wreath or swag.

It turned out fairly well so I decided to share this card.

I used 10 dark green tree shapes and 4 light green. It does look a little sparse in a couple of spots. If you like, increase them by 2 more on each side to produce a fuller swag.

I added a few red rhinestones as they really catch the light well for a festive look and the red reminds me of holly.
The finished card is 5.5" square.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollection white and ivory,rest is Bazzill
Patterned paper: We R Memory Keepers Antique Chic 6 x 6 paper pad
Stamps: French Script - SU, Wondrous Wreath - SU
Ink: ColorBox Fluid Ink - Chestnut Roan, Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow - SU
Dies: Apothecary Accents - SU, Labels Framelits - SU
Punches: Tree Builder - SU, Bow Builder - SU
Misc.: 6 x 1/4" red rhinestones, 2 x 1/4" clear rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
