12 Tags of Christmas......tag #2

Day 2  is using Kraft resist card and I was sure I'd got the Christmas stack but when I looked it was the vintage one, so using the music pattern sheet, I stamped some holly with Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder giving the same resist effect.


I was going to try and make each tag a little bit different from Tim's but I love the reindeer from TH Reindeer Flight so decided to use the same die. I used some some Prima printed canvas for my reindeer, the wreath and bell around her neck was silver but I painted it with gold paint. I've turned my border the other way around and added pearls rather than brads giving it a more feminine look.

Let me know if you're joining in with '12 Tags of Christmas' this year.

How lovely!
I appear to be doing nothing for December this year! It's the 3rd and I've taken not a single photo nor made anything so that appears to be it!
But your tag is absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to see the others too!

Oh, Deb... I love this. I really envy you making the tags. I so wanted to join in this year, but we're in Tennessee and I can't do any creating here... just buying. So I did pick up a bunch of Tim's stuff. Have fun!
