12 tags of Christmas - day 10

When I saw Tim's embossed metal tag, three little words popped into my head - Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.

It's a birthday folder, but isn't Christmas supposed to be a birthday? I used the Stained Glass Foil Technique from the December 2002 TJNL - the technique predates the Cuttlebug embossing folders, but the basic idea is there - you don't need Ten Minute Metal, you can use ordinary kitchen foil. I used my ghetto copics to color in the recessed areas, and I found I could wipe off the smudges on the high areas with Stazon cleaner - I don't know if that is a helpful tip for anyone. It's a fun little tag - I love the colors!

hmmmm Nice Christmas card ... Didn;'t realize you were so into Christmas. I love the colors and the birthday idea. When my kids were little, we made a birthday cake for Jesus every year for Christmas.

Great job. This was my favorite of his so far. Thanks for the idea to use a CB folder instead. Definitely going to have to give this a try now.
