I'm going to have to work backwards a bit here... sorry for that but I started in the middle! Today is Day 6 of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas challenge.
Here is a link to his blog entry with full instructions on how to make it.
The primary feature in Tim's tag is the vintage car carrying a snow-covered christmas tree home on its roof. He stamped both parts onto something called grungeboard, embossed them, coloured them and cut them out, then he added snow to the christmas tree with white glittery flocking, and tied the whole lot together with twine rope.
The background on his tag is a sheet of paper from a real live dictionary and he shows you how to distress it in the blog entry. Finally he finished with some inking, a greeting, a ribbon, and a metal tag pinned onto it for good measure.
And now for my challenge. I do not have a stamp for a vintage car OR a Christmas tree. I don't have any coloured embossing powder, any metal tags, or for good measure, any of the 'flocking powder'. I don't even own any grungeboard! lol The only item that I have to use of Tims is a distress stamp pad that somebody just gave me. So how did I do?
