- Start by putting texture paste through the reindeer stencil onto the tag. Let dry.
- Mix an Evergreen glaze by putting a tiny bit of Evergreen paint in a dollop of Glazing Medium. Glaze over the texture.
- Stir a bit of Night paint into the glaze to make a darker green, and glaze over the tag again.
- Stamp the Santa with black Archival ink on watercolor cardstock. I stamped four images. Water down some Ruby paint and paint in the hat and cheeks. Cut all the Santas out and layer them on top of each other with foam tape. Also stamp the frame and paint it with Gilt, Evergreen, and Ruby paints. Cut the frame out. Stamp the "happy Christmas" sentiment and cut it out as well. Lightly wash over the sentiment with Sky paint.
- Use your extra paint on a piece of cardstock--you need a red area and a green area. From the red area, cut some circles to represent holly berries. From the green area, free-hand cut some holly leaves. When they're dry, outline them a couple of times with the Fudeball pen.
- Stamp the toys onto a small piece of plain tissue wrap. Layer some book paper and the tissue wrap piece on the tag. I used the Tiny Attacher to attach all of the elements to tag. You could also use Multi Medium.
- Layer on the berries and leaves that you cut.
- Layer on the frame.
- Add the stacked Santas and the sentiment. I like there to be dimension so the I made sure the sentiment popped up.
- Edge the tag in black and add a piece of Crinkle Ribbon that you've painted with Ruby paint.
