Holiday Cards Tied Up With String (Take #2)

Here's another card for PTI's December 2013 Blog Hop, which was all about tying up projects using string in different ways.

This card uses a white card base with a second layer dry embossed using a Sizzix snowflake embossing folder, cut two pieces & inked the edges, leaving room for my "Merry Christmas" sentiment in black from PTI's Communique Curves stamp set. My Kraft tag was die cut with one of the Half & Half dies, which I shortened to fit at an angle. Using SU's Real Red ink, I stamped the plaid design from PTI's Half & Half stamps on white cardstock, die cut "ho" twice using Block Alphabet dies and rounded the corners. Also die cut the same "ho" from SU Real Red cardstock and adhered all three pieces to my tag. Finished it off by punching a small hole in the top of the tag and tying a piece of black & white Twinery Twine.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: White, Kraft and SU Real Red
Ink: SU Real Red and Momento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Communique Curves and Half & Half
Dies: Half & Half and Block Alphabet
Other: (non-PTI) Corner Chomper, Sizzix snowflake embossing folder & Twinery Twine
