Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas - Tag 1
Starting on December 1st, Tim Holtz started his 12 Tags of Christmas. I just love learning all the new techniques! This year, I've decided to do a card inspired by each and every tag. They won't all necessarily be Christmas cards, but they'll be inspired by the techniques Tim uses. As a bonus, I get to link my card to Tim Holtz's site to enter for a prize! So here is my first card inspired by Tim's First Tag.
I didn't have the pine cone die that Tim used, so I used MFT's Mini Rolled Roses Die. I think the pine cones turned out okay. I also used the technique that Tim used on the background. I don't have a snowflake embossing folder so I thought this Swiss Dots Embossing Folder would be the closest thing to snow.
I'm going to enter this card in a challenge over at the Inspiration Emporium blog. There's prizes there too! : D
