Christmas card - swirly tree digital image, decorative paper and some texture from a tracing wheel

This is another sample I had prepared for one of my classes which was dismissed due to the amount of people signed up for the class.  I features a digital image of a swirly tree which was colour printed on white cardstock, trimmed to size and then embellished with a tracing wheel to give it a bit of texture before being layered onto a coordinating rectangle of cardstock.  The 4" square of decorative paper was torn in two and the mounted onto a coordinating card front which was embossed with a Swiss Dot embossing folder.  The large focal element was mounted to the card front using 3D foam tape and positioned over the gap in the paper.
The digital image was manipulated digitally to create both green and red trees.  Fun to be able to change the colour of an image digitally which make is it much more versatile!
