I used this card for my stamp club meeting. The ladies LOVED it and several ordered the materials to make it! I just love the double background look and had to use it. I CASED the basic card idea from somewhere on here, but now I can't find the card. Didn't have a Christmas-y word that would match the card, so I printed from the computer.
I inked the tree with Artichoke and then ran my brown marker over the trunk of the tree to get the two color look. There is glitter at the base of the tree, but not sure if it shows up very well.
