Christmas tag

I made this tag for the Studio L3 challenge CCC #24 - Rock Candy Distress Stickles technique. Look in Tim's book for exact instructions.
First I embossed with the music folder in the cuttlebug and then heat embossed with vanilla powder (oh!!! it smelled so good :D) then I covered it up with green distress ink (which I didn't let dry :( and promptly wiped it off when I applied the stickles stuff. But the green did stay around the embossing and I quite like this effect. (mistakes are good!!!)
The flower is cut using a Marianne Design die and the robin and branch using a storybook cricut cartridge.
I am also entering this in the delightful Challenges - embossing challenge


  1. This is beautiful and cute all in one, I love it!

  2. Stunning tag! Thanks for joining us at Delightful Challenges.

  3. Oh, this is gorgeous, Jolanda! I love the soft, elegant background, and you're so right-- the effect you got with the green ink and embossing powder is fabulous! (I wish my mistakes turned out like that!)

    I hope you have a magical holiday and get lots of goodies under the tree!
