Tim Holtz's Twelve Tags of Christmas

So here is my first tag..I will post the list supplies I used in a bit..

Ok..I changed my tag up a bit..I used the same techniques Tim used but differed with the dicuts I used..
I don't have the dies that Tim used on his tag except for the tattered Pinecones..LOVE this die but there is a learning curve with this one so be sure to practice first!
I used Frosty saying from  the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge and then embossed it with Snowflake Embossing Tinsel from Ranger. I do not have the Distress kraft stack so I used a piece from the original Distress stacks..The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug. Since I did not have the Kraft core I swiped Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over parts of the snowflakes to get that same effect.
The branch is from the Winter Woodland Cricut cartrdge. I cut extra leaves out to give it more dimension. I colored seam binding with Iced Spruce..I plan on getting some baubles to attach to it but that will have to wait until I get to the store ! I love how this turned out! It just goes to show that you can use what you have and still get the same look!
