Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas Tag 3



OH Boy my heart sank when this tag came up this morning!  These two items are not available here in South Africa at all!  Hoping against hope that they are in the shipment that is imminent as they are top of my wish list for under the Christmas tree this year!


I used the Craft Concepts embossing folder and inked the raised areas of the tag after ebossing it in my Vagabond, let it dry and then inked the inside of the folder as per the instructions for tag 1 and put the tag back, lined it up again and ran it through the VB.  I covered it with white embossing powder to hide where my applicator tool had got the ink in the recesses!  I then put all the greenery at the top of the tag instead of the bottom like Tims.

Below you can see that Tim Used his Christmas stamp and matching embossing folder for today's tag and you can find all the instructions HERE.  All 64 photographs of step by step clear and easy to follow instructions...
