12 Days of Christmas - Day 4

Ok... let's see if I can catch up a bit! Hubby is away for a few days so maybe he won't notice that there's no clean underwear....

Here's the Day 4 tag from Tim Holtz:

(taaa daaah! I finally figured out how to link the photo to the originating website. Phew!)

I love the glow Tim created in the background on his tag.  Now, again, I had different materials than he did, so I ended up with this:

I don't have the snowman die, so I pulled out the old Seasonal Grunge and found this guy.... he looks kind of dorky, but, hey, a snowman's a snowman!  I don't have distress stains, but I was able to use my ink for a similar effect.  I do LOVE the new Iced Spruce colour for distress ink.  It's for cool colours what Corduroy Brown is for warm colours.

Another favourite thing about this card (and, yes, I make these as Christmas cards because, well honestly, I'm an accountant and need these things to be somewhat practical...) is that I was able to use my Memory Box dies.  They have beautiful intricate designs that I haven't found from any other die manufacturer.  The one's I used on this card are Frostyville
and Frosty Border

Aren't they pretty? They're kind of hard to see on the card, but I did take an angle shot so that you can see it a bit better.

Hopefully I'll be back later today with another card!
