A Tribute to Tim Holtz - 12 Cards of Christmas - Card 2

Continuing the theme today, we have a card based on the second of Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas from 2010.

"12 Cards of Christmas - Card 2"

Today's A6 topper is decorated with red tinsel ribbon and mounted onto red foil and green sparkly card before adhering to an A5 card blank.


 Each of Tim's tags introduces a technique, and this one uses pink & blue coloured distress inks & clear embossing to make the snowflake background, which is then inked in various blues and overstamped with a script stamp in brown.

"Swallow charm"

Not having any of Tim's adornments, I made my own little silver bird from a small, metal brass charm coloured with Adirondack silver mixative and adhered to the topper with Pinflair.

"Christmas Tree"

The tree and sentiment are stamped from an old Papermania stamp set and decorated with glitter glue for a bit of extra sparkle.
