Twofer Card Challenge #31 ~ Trees

Hello and welcome!

I hope this finds you doing well! I'm pretty sure I'd be in a padded room somewhere by now if it weren't for our crafting community and this wonderful hobby. We make a difference by continuing to send love and cheer with our cards and I hope our challenge will inspire you to play along, have some fun, and make two cards for two special someones!
This month our challenge prompt is:
You know what September means in our little corner of Blogland? Time to get busy with those Christmas cards if you've been putting it off, refusing to make them during summer. So this month's prompt might see a lot of evergreen🌲 or🎄 on Christmas cards as one of your occasions! And then there are 🌳 and 🌴. . .
  1. Feel free to interpret the prompt however it inspires you to make two distinctly different design layouts for two different occasions. (If both occasions are not clear on the card fronts, please state the specific occasions in your post.)
  2. Please remember that you must use the same stamp (as opposed to the same set of stamps) and you may use digis for any elements of your Twofer designs, except for the prompt element.
  3. You're welcome to make two conventional designs or a combination of one conventional and one unconventional design. 
We appreciate your enthusiasm and support and can't wait to see you stretch your stamps, stencils, dies, and design skills! Please see the above tabs for more detailed rules, examples, and frequently asked questions.

Guest Designers:

Please welcome our July conventional winner, Helen of Helen's Craft Haven with her Twofer designs using the TREES prompt to inspire you! Thank you, Helen!
And please welcome our July unconventional winner, Lisa of My Paper Taleswith her Twofer designs using the TREES prompt to inspire you! Thank you, Lisa!
