12 Tags of Christmas – Day 12

Day 12 - Barbara Ford 

Starting with a blank manila #8 tag, I stamped some Merry Christmas sentiments, and in the spaces around the stamps, I wrote some passages from Luke 2. After “whitewashing” the tag with Picket Fence stain, I then glued tissue wrap (symphony) over the entire tag and then covered it all with Rock Candy Stickles.

I followed Tim’s instructions for the tissue wrap flower, and I was surprised it was so easy!

I cut an angel on the Cricut, from the Christmas cartridge, on grunge paper. I painted the blackout piece with Silver (dabber paint) and the overlay of the angel with Snowcap (dabber paint). The letters for “Hark” were cut on the Cricut from the Storybook cartridge (using American Crafts glitter card stock). I inked all edges with Black Soot Distress Stain, and added some tinsel and “ribbon.”

Your card is beautiful. I like how you substituted things you own for what Tim did.

Tag, not card.
