More Christmas Cards inspired by 12 Tags

I had a great time making Christmas cards on a base of cards from Tim's District Market collection- I love the vintage prints on heavy weight kraft cards (yep, I have a thing for Kraft!).  The fabulous base made it so easy to create fun card, all of mine were inspired by Tim's 12 Tags from 2010 and earlier...

this first card uses an on the edge die from Tim Holtz, cut from grungeboard and painted with acrylic paint.  I distressed by sanding and added some glittery snow.  The 'smoke' was bent from wire and the sentiment (Hero Arts) is stamped on a tattered banner (also from Tim Holtz).
... and the second card uses embossing techniques- embossing grungeboard (the deer) and stamping in an embossing folder.  Pretty simple card, but I love how it turned out.
So there ya go... some more simple cards for some last minute card making.  I've got so many more card ideas I haven't had a chance to create yet... I just might work on next years cards through January if I get a chance ;)
