Created this Christmas Tag using Tim Holtz tag, Cuttlebug embossing border, TH sander, TH Mini Cardinal die, TH Distress Ink, Th gold stickles for glitter look on Cardinal's beak, Hero Arts stamp & ribbon.
Embossed the TH tag with a Cuttlebug embossing border.
Distressed the TH cardstock w/ TH sander before die cutting since the piece is small.
Have been using the TH die for quite some time but this time noticed that the Cardinals claw has 3 parts to it. I use clear packing tape on my dies to make them cut easier & make removing of the cardstock/material used. I did not have tape covering the 3rd piece of the claw and so it was not cutting. Corrected that & now the Cardinal's claw is correct.
Continued to distress the Cardinal by using TH Distress Ink on Cardinal's edge, claw & near the beak. Added TH gold stickles to Cardinal's beak. Added ribbon.
