12 Tags of 2015 - A Late Creation For December
Topic: Die Cuts

Despite my best intentions - making all of the 12 tags of 2015 by Tim Holtz - I got so wrapped up in the holidays that I didn't get December's done last year. But I decided to go ahead and make it anyway, even though it is a month late.

Here is the original tag created by Tim:

Once again, I chose to make a showpiece instead of a tag. Here is the process I used.

- Cut a piece of grasscloth wallpaper sample into  the desired size.

- Place on paper towel

- Use Distress Stain to tint the piece

- Lay stencil over the piece and spritz with another color of Distress Stain

- Place a clean paper towel over the top and blot away extra ink

- Remove stencil and dry piece with a heat gun

- Run piece through Xyron to apply adhesive to the back

- Adhere to stiff backing and trim backing to size

- Ink edges of piece and backing

- Select various greens of kraft core cardstock and a red piece for other parts

- Diecut different greenery from each color of kraft core

- Sand surface with sanding block

- Lightly ink edges with Distress Ink

- On the base piece, trace a circle

- Gently crunch and crumple the diecut foliage

- Use glossy Accents to adhere greenery around the circle

- Create a dimensional bow from red kraft core cardstock

- Adhere bow to bottom of wreath using Glossy Accents

- Punch tiny dots from red kraft core cardstock. Adhere to wreath in twos and threes as holly berries

- Diecut greeting from red kraft core cardstock

- Sand surface with sanding block

- Cut a piece of sage green kraft core into a wide strip and ink edges with Distress

- Attach to main piece with small brads

- Adhere greeting to strip with Glossy Accents

And here is the final piece:


And, finally I am truly done with the 2015 'tags' series.

I do intend to give it a go for 2016 as well, so we'll see where that takes us.
