This is the card I sent to Dawn's Glitter Queen Swap this year. I wanted to wait until after the deadline for submitting them before posting the tutorial.
Here are the supplies I used:

Cut Not Quite Navy CS 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and score at 4-1/4" to form the card base.
Use the 2-Way Glue Pen to apply Dazzling Diamonds.
Attach the tree image to the Whisper White mat with Snail Adhesive.
Use the Mat Pack to pierce holes in the corners.
Attach the matted tree image and the greeting to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Repeat 19 times and you have your swaps done! I can't wait to get my swaps back from the other Glitter Queens.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial. My posts will be a little slower during the holidays. I just retired last March, so this will be the first Christmas that I don't have to rush all of the shopping, decorating, baking and stuff. I plan to take it easy and enjoy the season for a change. As soon as I finish the 45-50 handmade Christmas cards that is. And then there's the cookie exchange..... *sigh*
