Oh Christmas tree

Today's card was created with a freebie digital image that I downloaded from Paulette's blog at Create with TLC. I thought it was a perfect image for a CAS design.

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.

Materials used:
Digital image - TLC Creations freebie
Embossing folder - Sizzix
Ink - Ranger's disstress ink
Colouring - Flexmarkers
Snow - Aleene's true snow
Ribbon - from stash
