Tim Holtz Christmas Caroler and Damask Background


Week 11 tag from the Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas, can you believe it!  Just a few short days away until the winner of The Funkie Junkie Boutique giftcard is announced!  Since I went heavy on the dots in my last make, I decided to switch to a damask background for this go round.  I had so much fun creating this inky stamped background.  It is one of my favorites from this year!


I was so lucky to get to cut out some of the new word dies during our girl's weekend.  My friend Madelyn has all the latest and greatest and shares!  Thanks Mad!  I surrounded the die with snippets from a small talk sticker.  I layered several of the snowflakes together for dimension.


My friend Carol had the caroler stamp - how ironic!  He is my all time fav Tim Holtz stamp!  I was thrilled to ink him up.  I added another jingle bell, now it seems Christmas cards aren't complete without them!

Sensational, Autumn! I love your red damask background. It is perfect for a Christmas card and the red looks terrific with the black festive gent silhouette. And I really like the way you did the sentiment with a combination of a die cut and the black stickers. Great card!

Hugs,
Linda
