"12 Cards of Christmas - Card 5"
The edge of the background was created with a small tube of white acrylic paint and my finger instead of the paint dabber used by Tim. A similar effect is created of a snowy edge to the topper. The large green ornate tag was cut from an empty cat food box (no grungepaper) using a Spellbinders label die (no ornamental die) and covered with a thick layer of green acrylic paint (no distress crackle paint) followed by a small amount of white mixed in with the paintbrush to create a marbling effect. The edges were sanded and stained with distress ink. Luckily, I did have some Tim Holtz music paper, which was torn and stained with inks before adhering with PVA.
The fake enamel numbers were cut from empty cat food box using a strip die, then heat embossed with alternate layers of hi puff and white embossing powder to build up a good, thick layer of embossing. Pretend nail heads were formed from tiny blobs of Liquid Pearls dimensional paint. The edges were inked with black promarker pen.
Cheap Chinese charms were "enamelled" by heat embossing with different colours of embossing powders and stuck in place with Pinflair. The holly sprigs were decorated with green and red Papermania glitter glue.
