12 Tags of Christmas - Day Three

Oh, that Tim...he's really going all out this year! He's using technique after technique and lots of new products...I'm really having to be super creative in 2011! LOVE IT!

Today's tag was super easy to create and although my card looks a bit different than Tim's the same technqiues were used; embossing, adding color with a blending tool and Distress Inks, and using gold Perfect Peals.

To start, I ran a piece of kraft cardstock through my Big Shot, using a holiday words embossing folder from Sizzix. I then used Distress Inks (all the new colors of course!) to add color over the embossing. The edges are nicely distressed and Walnut Stain Distress Ink was added for some depth. (Never underestimate that Walnut Stain ink...it really does add something wonderful to the edges of cards!)

And then for the bling...gold Perfect Pearls...doesn't that just rock! The gold shimmer is just amazing! I then added the twine and altered metal tag (had to go with that saying 'cause this project was definitely altered!). The greenery at the bottom of the card was created using Tim's fall die and Kraft Core-dinations cardstock. The three holly berries were actually white, I colored them red using Copic markers.

Enjoy and stop back tomorrow for more!!
