"12 Cards of Christmas - Card 3"
To start with, the card is inked and stamped with distress inks. Tim used a spotty stamp to make a snowy background on his tag; I used a fabulous crackle stamp from the Indigo Blu "Alice I" set with clear ink and white embossing powder to make an icy background, which you can see in the picture below:
The charm is a cheap one from China, decorated with seed beads held in place with tiny dots of Pinflair glue, and strung onto a length of gold, tinsel ribbon.
I love this sentiment with elves spelling "HAPPY". It was a free image printed from Magic Moonlight's blog onto cream card and the edges distressed with inks.
This is one of the birds from the "Caged Bird" die cuts that my good friend Lee sent me, coloured with distress ink, stamped with script stamp, and covered in holographic glitter glue, following the instructions exactly as for the one on Tim's tag. In the background, you can see the stamp I used from a Papermania set.
The topper was mounted onto a green, pearlised card blank with some gorgeous red & green shimmery ribbon tied around the card and into a generous bow for an extra bit of dimension.
