I had the pleasure of playing with the Christmas Trees mini stencil. it is such a clever design containing two trees.

Here are my cards:

 I kept them very simple by coloring with my Prismacolor Pencils and adding a sentiment from Kathryn and Christmas. Used the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies

This one I used several shades of Orange pencils to color the circles in:))
