Tutorial - Tim Holtz Style Christmas Card

Hi, Everyone,
I've been busy making Christmas cards in, of course, Tim Holtz style.
I brought out Tim's Seasonal paper pack from last year & used the vintage Christmas images as the focal point on the card . . . can you spot the packaging?
Love "idea-iology" products & Glass glitter.  Check out my favourite Christmas verse!

To create this card:
- distress the edges of kraft cardstock then sewing it to an ivory card
- cut out a vintage Christmas image from Tim's Seasonal paper pack from last year & distress the edges
- cut out a coordinating solid from the same paper pack & distress the edges
- layer the image on the solid & sew onto the front of the card
- from white cardstock cut out On the Edge Doily Die
- tuck doily under edge of solid paper then staple top & bottom of doily to card

*Never through away Tim's packaging*
- trim any Tim's idea-ology packaging into a banner & glue to card over image & doily
- cut a 3" piece of Ruler Ribbon & glue to card below banner
- cut out a strip of sheet music from the Seasonal paper pack
- tuck folded sheet music under edge of Christmas image & glue to card

- cut a 22" piece of sheer tan ribbon & wrap around the card front, tying a bow at the banner

- attach a bobble to a jump ring then to the bow

- inside the card I glued my favourited Christmas quote on the left
- inside on the right is blank so you can write your special message

Have fun creating!
