I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. There theme this week is "Tags" featuring Tim Holtz. I wanted to make a Christmas card using Tim Holz, but I don't have any Christmas stamps by them, so I improvised. The stammp I used might just look familiar to you. It's the Party Hat Sketch stamp! I just colored it green and red using my Zig Clean Color Markers, and turned it into a Christmas tree!! For the tag, I used some Kraft tags I bought at Michael's and distressed the edges with some Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I speckled some snow in using white gouache and then used some white pearlescent paste through the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil for larger snow. For the snowbank, I used some Glass Bead medium from Golden, mixed with some white acrylic paint, which I then topped with glitter. The glass beads give it an amazing texture.
The background paper is old stock from Close to My Heart, which I cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Your Next Stamp. The sentiment was actually a Rub-On that I got from the Dollarama last year that matched perfectly! Then I just mounted everything to a green cardstock base from Michael's. I added a gold star and some twine for the finishing touches. Done!
