It's December again, so it must be time for Tim Holtz to delight us with his daily "12 Tags of Christmas"!
There were quite a few "bits" that I didn't have to complete this tag as demonstrated by Tim in his instructions, as follows:
House - I don't have his wonky house die and my Cuttlebug is packed away in a box somewhere, so I could neither cut it out or emboss it with his notepaper folder. Instead, I used my own wonky house design, cut on the Cricut. I used my Scor-it board to create the horizontal lines, which remained white when the house was inked. I had no mica for the windows so I used vellum with a dot pattern on it. All snow on the tag is Ranger's White Enamel Accents (first time I'd used it, and I LOVE IT).
Tree - I didn't have a bendy Prima branch thingy, so cut my own winter tree on the Cricut, inked it dark brown and snowed it with enamel accents.
Holly wreath - I didn't have any mini holly garland, so I cut a wreath and bow shape on the Cricut and coloured with Promarkers.
Fence - my own design, again cut on the Cricut.
Ticket - I had no Cut'n'Dry felt to make a custom ink pad (and to be honest, if I did, I don't think I'd do it anyway!). I inked the stamp in black and used a baby wipe to remove ink from the parts I didn't want to show as black and stamped it. I did the same again with green ink, then with red. I think it turned out pretty well! :)
I'm a day behind, so I'd better get a move on with day 2! :)
