I used distress inks in the seasonal Christmas colors and my white picket fence paint dauber for the background. I did use a Stampin' Up flourish stamp for some of this part because I really love the large flourishes that it had. I also spritzed it with silver perfect pearls. Here is a close up picture of my background.
After that I used Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas and adhered it to grunge paper and cut out the reindeer with Tim's Reindeer Flight Die, inked the edges with "vintage photo" distress ink. I used one of Tim's stamps to stamp the music sheet onto it and spritzed it with silver perfect pearls.
Once that was done I used brown packing paper (the kind that comes in a roll) and cut out a tag with Tim's Ticket Strip Die and stamped onto it with the Christmas stamp using red and green distress ink. I used glossy accents to go over the "25" and added a little red smooch for the berries. Distressed the edges a bit and went over them with Vintage Photo distress ink as well.
I cut out the greenery with Tim's Festive Greenery and grunge paper (love that stuff).... and sanded it a bit to give it a weathered look. I used Tim's tissue wrap to make the flower, just like Tim does in the tag on day 12. I just made a smaller version. I inked up the edges with Smooch red and spritzed with perfect pearls. I added the berries, gems and also the pearls last. Hope you like it and I hope all the swappers love it too. Now to make 26 more of them!!! haha!!! Again,
my picture taking skills are terrible so the cards looks crooked but I promise it's totally straight. lol
