Inspired by Tim Holtz 12 tags of Christmas

Tim Holtz is an amazing artist and his products are no less amazing. This is the 3rd year he has created the 12 tags of Christmas - not only wonderful eye candy, but very detailed tutorials. After reading through some directions, I pulled out some of my Tim Holtz goodies and came up with this tag. I used a Bazzill chipboard tag base, that I inked up using the distress ink re-inkers. I the stamped snowflakes with Versamark and embossed with the Distress embossing powders. I had some sheets of grungeboard that I ran through the cuttlebug to cut out my frame. I sprayed it with Tattered Angels and rubbed distress stickles over the top. In my flourish cut out, I filled it in with another Distress stickles. I had a cool reproduction playing card that I used for my image and added a piece of Tim Holtz movie strip ribbon over the top. Then I added a little heavy metal and some BG fibers, inked the edges and was done.
