I got out my Festive Gent die (love that guy!) for my main focal point. He was cut from black kraft core, which was sanded a bit and then I gave him a slight sprinkling of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter. In the silhouette, he is carrying a wreath. I chose to use Pine Twine to give the wreath dimension and interest, adding a tiny red bow. My die cut pine branches were done exactly as Tim shows on his blog as I wanted to try out that technique too. My pine branches and bow were offset rather than topping the tag because I wanted the stamping under the Frosted to show through. I really like the offset bow and branches. I covered the tag hole with a acrylic crystal snowflake from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I also embellished the bow with a silver tone wreath and tiny silver bells also from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Because I am hooked on the jumbo manila tags I sell at the boutique, my tag was longer than the Frosted. I chose to put the part the Frosted didn't cover at the bottom of the tag and needed something to fill in. Tim's texture paste to the rescue! I love the snow that I created. It was liberally sprinkled with more Clear Rock Candy distress glitter while still wet and the excess was tapped off.
I'm so glad I finally got to play again in Tim's monthly challenge. I hope you enjoyed my version! Thanks so much for stopping by!
