Twelve Tags of Christmas 2011!

I've never joined in with the 12 Tags Challenge before but thought I'd have a go. I loved today's tag but didn't have most of the materials (many of them are on my wish list!) so here's my version - inspired by Tim Holtz of course!

I used some Coredinations cardstock as my tag which I embossed with a Versamarked embossing folder then used a glittery white embosssing powder and sanded back once dry. I don't have a Christmas greeting die so I embossed some grungepaper with this Christmas alterations embossing folder and cut it out!! Again I Versamarked it and added gold embossing powder which I very carefully brushed off the background before heating then used red Staz-On once it had cooled down to add an extra dimension. The die cut grungeboard bauble is gilded with silver leaf flakes and the branches are cut with a Marianne die which I picked up today in the clearance at the craft shop where I work!!  I finished off with a couple of Idea-ology Baubles and some green ribbons. I've really enjoyed creating this and looking forward to tomorrow's inspiration! JulieD
