Christmas in July ~ Week #1

Christmas is just around the corner and time to think of ideas to make a Christmas Tag or Card!

Lets get out our holiday stamps and play this month. 
Since 2009 I've created Christmas Tags instead of a card.
They are so much fun to make! 
If you have Tim's tag die you can also make a card by placing the fold inside a little or the edge you prefer.

Three Wise Men

 I used Tim Holtz Joyful Song Stamp Set on this tag.

Ink Wise Men image with Archival black inkheat set to dry. Manila paper was used to make tag. 
Ink crackle stamp to cover tag and then apply three colors of distress inks one at a time with a foam applicator starting with the bottom color and working up the blue. If you are working on a card with these images you might want to add a sentiment, I didn't have room on thus tag with the wise men covering the tag.
Distress inks
Ink seam binding with distress stain, wad up, let dry, and then add to tag.

Thanks for Looking and Have a Nice Day!!
