Cut the striped rectangle and diecut oval frame from the 6 x 6 patterns and solids pad. Border punch the rectangle. Cut the two small rectangles from Scrooge & Marley.
Cut out the shown cut-apart from Figgy Pudding paper.
Fussy cut the gentleman from either an Ephemera card or from the 12 x 12 Figgy Pudding paper.
Cut a tag 3.5 x 8.5" from Bah Humbug. I've used 12x12 paper but you can use 8 x 8 paper & cut in the middle, adhering @ top & bottom. The blank space in the middle will be covered by the cut-apart.
Adhere Scrooge and Marley rectangles to the top & bottom of the striped frame as shown.
Adhere to the tag as shown about 1.75" from the top.
Center the diecut frame in the middle of the striped frame.
Add cardboard in the center of the frame cut slightly smaller than the cut-apart (step 2) from Figgy Pudding. Alternatively, you could use foam tape on the back of the cut-apart.
Adhere the cut-apart over the cardboard.
Add cardboard where shown slightly smaller than the fussy cut image from step 3. I don't allow the cardboard to extend over the tag's edge so that the tag will be attractive from the back,
Adhere the fussy cut image over the cardboard. You could use foam tape to pop up the image instead of cardboard.
Spray some brown mist on your craft mat and paint it over the pine cones. Using mist keeps the definition of the pine cone scales whereas paint tends to cover up these kind of laser etchings.
Paint on mist. First I used Lindy's Frost Forest Green. After that dried, I dabbed on some Ponderosa Pines Olive. (Note, I used dabber caps on alot of my mists for these kinds of applications.)
Add the pine clusters where shown and embellish with flowers and berries. Add a few chipboard snowflakes that you've painted white and detail with Icicle Stickles.
Dry brush some white paint on the flowers, pine cones and needles to simulate snow. Then use Icicle Stickles to detail the pine cones and flowers. Use Crystal Stickles to detail the pine branches.
Detial the printed holly berries with Red Stickles. Add a pretty bow at the top and you're all done!
