I started out with the following sketch but in retrospect I think I've taken some creative liberties here, but at least I have another Christmas card done LOL.
I printed the image twice and then cut out the tree from one of the printed images. The pattern on the tree was created with a Sizzix embossing folder that I inked on the inside with distress ink. The trunk was coloured with Flexmarkers. I added Aleene's true snow on the lines below the tree to add a snowy effect.
