12 Tags of Christmas - Day Two

I'm back with Day Two of Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas!! (You can call mine the 12 Cards of Christmas!) This is where I start to find different ways/products to use to re-create the looks that Tim has on his tags.

Today's tag features this darling deer image, which has been die cut using sticky-back canvas. (Love that stuff!) I also was able to use some of Tim's embossed Kraft cardstock. I don't have the Christmas line but used the one that I had. I also don't have the Distress Stain that Tim used on his tag, to make the background white, so I just used a paint dauber, which worked perfectly.

The other items I was missing? A holly stamp, the decorative die Tim used for the bottom of the card, and tiny green garland! I used a pine branch for the holly and used red Stickles to create the berry and I used two Spellbinders dies (a scalloped and plain) to create the wreath around the deer's neck. I also used gold paper and a scallop punch for the scallops at the bottom of the card vs. painting grungeboard with gold paint.

And so far the next few tags have really stretched my creative imagination in trying to develop clever ways to re-create the looks...so. much. fun.!!

Enjoy today's tag and check back on Friday for number three!!
