Santa Cameo Tag

This was a really fun tag to make. I made the background with Tim Holtz’s double emboss technique, using the Evergreen Bough Distress Ink. The technique involves stamping a background stamp and heat embossing the stamp. The next step is to coat the entire tag (the stamped image acting as a resist) with Distress Ink and then embossing the entire thing with clear embossing powder.

The Santa cameo is cut with the Cricut December 25 cartridge from chipboard, embossed with clear embossing powder and then covered with Black Diamond Stickles. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

And here it is on my Tag Tree:
