Christmas Cards with Park Ave Card kit

Hello there! I love the Christmas season. All the festive trimmings, the decor of sparkly ornaments and lush ribbons, people in the spirit of giving, Hallmark movies and even the snowy bluster of the season, but maybe that's because I don't live in an area with snow. 

In the spirit of the season I created a trendy and  simple Christmas card and matching envelope with Studio Calico's Park Ave card kit. The card was so easy to make that you could easily replicate them for mass Christmas card making. All you'll need is the kit, cardstock, Studio Calico Christmas tree veneers and tinsel glitter (plus your favorite ink color combination).
First I stamped a cityscape with the stamp set included in the card kit, alternating ink colors. I then trimmed the sentiment masking tape to create a festive sentiment strip of the same scale. I added a bit of gold trim and affixed a sentiment banner with foam tape to the card.
To give the city scape a festive holiday feel, I added some veneer Christmas trees and a light dusting of tinsel glitter on the rooftops of the buildings.
To create the matching envelope, I stamped the buildings on both edges of the envelope, leaving room to write the address, and added a few wood veneer trees. If you mail the envelopes rather than hand-delivering, you may want to not affix the veneers, but with a little extra postage and some strong adhesive you can mail the envelopes with the cute trees.
I think these cards would be fun to make and send, even personalizing them by switching up the ink colors used for the buildings. How would you add your own touch to your Christmas cards to make each one unique?
