Tim Holtz Inspired

Happy Wednesday Stampers,
I wanted to get this card up earlier in the week but am just getting to it.  I was sitting at my computer Saturday morning and wanted to create something with my Pazzles, but what??  I was looking at all the new posts for the Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas Tags and was inspired by the first two.  I don't have any of his dies so set to work creating something in Pazzles.  I love the way the Noel came out and on the swirl as well.  I covered it in the new Cayenne Star Embossing Powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I also created the Spiral Pinecone file and the Holly leaves....then I needed a different bottom border and created that.  The pinecone has White Crackle paint on it to look like it's snow covered.  The card ended up taking all day with creating the cut file, but I learned a lot on my Pazzle software and how to create.  For the background of the card I Versamarked the Snowflake embossing folder, then covered it with Winter White EP and brushed off the excess from the tops of the dry embossed sections and then heated.  The ribbon was also colored with Copics.  Of course since I started out wanting to make a card and ending up with what was suppose to be a tag, I had to alter a bit and ended up with the large tag on an easel card.


Thanks for stopping by:)
Happy Stampin,
Jill
