Tim Holtz 12 Tags of Christmas #9

Sharing my take on Tim Holtz's Chrismtas Tag 9:

I made lots of substitution but I did try the double emboss technique he show on his blog- really neat effect I am definitely warming up to doing more stamping/embossing (only tripped over my heat gun once LOL so I am getting better for sure!).  I did not have the chandelier die to make the candle stand but used the bottom portion of the dress form.  The candle is a Quickutz birthday '1' trimmed to a candle shape.  The leaves around the candle are from the Tim's regal crest die.

The symbol of a lit candle evokes a powerful meaning so I did not want to add anything more to the tag to distract from it.  Thanks for looking!

  1. OH...I love your background! Looks like antique metal panels!
    Great use of your dressform die. I think I'll have to try that one, as I don't have the chandelier die either.
    Very Pretty! Thank you for sharing!
