Card with Santa by Tim Holtz

At The Funkie Junkie blog there's a challenge called 12 tags of Christmas. Until Christmas I have to make 12 tags using Linda's examples as motivations. 

This card is the interpretation of Linda's 7th tag. 

And if you click here you can see the original tag.

Instead of stencil I used Tim's stamps with the same inks that Linda used (Faded Jeans, Pine Needles). I also used the same frame die with embossing powder, the Poinsettia and the Holiday Greens die.

But here is the supply list:

  2. What a great take this is! It really inspires me for the tag I've found to be most difficult thus far. Love your Santa image and beautiful vintage details. Hugs, Autumn

  3. Your plaid background is absolutely gorgeous! And your Santa image is so beautifully colored. He looks stunning framed up with that wonderdul die cut frame. The poinsettia is the perfect finishing touch. So glad you have played along for Tag #7!


  4. Monika, my eye was instantly drawn to your plaid background and embossed frame. I've got to check and see if I have that EP; if not, it's going on my wish list! Your Santa image is beautiful as is that really fabulous poinsettia! Hugs!


Thank you for your lovely comments, I really appreciate it!
