Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas #4



Oh my...did I struggle with this tag! I decided that the biggest problem for me was dealing with the Stickles that I used on the little 'roof' (made of punched cardstock). Because I didn't have 1x1 pieces of glass for the Memory Capsule and frame, I went to the 1x3 size. The chain attachment was then too long; shortening it finally necessitated help from my husband. I used a Christmas slide image from "Winter Wonderland" at Ten Two Studios. The surface was sealed with Glossy Accents and a little copper glitter. More copper glitter adds color to the ultrafine clear microbeads in the capsule. Finally finished! Now I can start on Day 5. (click on tag for closer view)

Your tag is beautiful! Love the santa in the memory frame - it's a true focal point.

Your punched roof is a great idea! I love all the little touches you added. I just went to the stamp store and they didn't have any of the fragments for today's tag....don't know what I'll do!!

Way to go, Evelyn. You may have struggled with this tag, but the end result is stunning. Great ingenuity with the "roof" -- I hope Tim sees this; he'd no doubt applaud your effort. Denise B.
