Tim's August tag this year featured a die-cut text background and a Found Relative collage. My Christmas version features a background that was stamped with text and I used an image from his Merriment paper stash.
I was happy to use some vintage postage, Correspondence remnant rubs and Chit-Chat stickers for embellishment. It's hard to believe that five cents was all it took to mail a Christmas card from 1963-1968.
Since the paper tones were rather muted I used a little Fired Brick Distress Ink to emphasize the costumes.
For me, this tag's best features are the soft matte paper textures and the way the photo was cropped to fit the tag.
I'm linking to Simon's Monday blog challenge where this week's theme is (no surprise) Holly Jolly Stamping.
