12 Tags of Christmas; #9


It's the LAST day of the 12 Tags of Christmas!

But I am posting Tag 9.  What to do when you don't have the die cut Tim uses...Cricut!  Welcome to my version of Tim's Tag #9.  I have really been enjoying stamping and creating the resist tag with embossing and inking.  I think it's my favorite of all the techniques!  Here's how I made Tag 9 without the candlelight fright die.  I used my Cricut cart October 31st.  I looked at Chic and Scary too but the Oct 31'st had a better cut.

I used 2 cuts from the October 31st cart.  One was the candelabra cut at 5 1/2 inches and this awesome drippy candle cut at 3".  Then mounted the candle on the cut candelabra.  I also ran file folder through my Cricut and did the same cuts so I could mount my paper onto it for a thicker candle.

I had a sheet of this wax butcher type paper left over so I hand cut some holy leaves, punched some green snowflakes to make some leafy greens.  Hehe...now I have Festive Greenery!  I added this little silver jingle earring I got from the $1 store and attached it. 


For the tag I used Fire Brick and Forest Moss distressing Inks.  Then went over with some Walnut for a deeper look.

I used my Flourish Die I just got and since I don't have the font die I cut at 3/4" PEACE from Sophisticated.


 
Thanks for checking out my 12 Tags of Christmas.  I always appreciate your awesome feedback!  But wait...I made a 2nd tag like this.  To see this tag...a variation of it come back on Dec 16th.  I will have a couple treats to show you!  Can't wait!!!!
