For this tag, I stayed with Tim's instructions and didn't try to create a "different take". Much easier to get them done in a short time,eh?

For the background see Tim's instructions for double embossing. I used a Penny Black "Winter Holly" stamp inked with TH Evergreen Bough distress ink, then sponged over with TH Festive Berries, and Brushed Corduroy.
I cut the candle and candlestick using my Cricut from the "Christmas Noel" cartridge. Once the crystal glaze was dry covering the whole candle, I went back and added some more to look like wax dripping.
The verse is from Sizzix Sizzlet #656285 "Merry Christmas"set of three dies. I cut the greenery from several sizzlets dies and Martha Stewart punch. Scrolls are a Quickutz die.
My husband has been following my completion of the tags each day and commented last night that this one looked a bit plainer than the others. I explained that each of Tim's tags was like a mini-class in technique and this one was all about the background. Then he understood!
