Happy hump day my friends.
Hope you're keeping warm, it's freezing here, blech!
Today I'm showing you the toy soldier tag I made into a candy cane holder.
I think these would make cute little gifts.
The first thing I did was heat emboss the toy soldier from Tim Holtz Collection Christmas Blueprint stamp set. I inked the stamp with VersaMark, poured on white embossing powder and heat set it. Next, I added Distress Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough ink with my blending tool. I wiped the white soldier a bit to remove the ink.To make the water spots I sprayed water in my hand and flicked it onto the tag and dried it with my heat tool. I scored the tag, folded it and put on a piece of black cardstock that was die cut with Alterations Vintage Lace die on the front and wrapped it around to the back and adhered it.
I put red Kaiser Rhinestones on the lace and soldiers hat. I ran some white seam binding over the Evergreen Bough ink pad for matching ribbon.
Isn't he the cutest thing? I had to have him the minute I saw him!
I put him in the tag with foam dots.
