Christmas Tim Holtz Style

This week's Grungy Monday challenge is  Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas, 2007, Day 6. I went with creating a card instead of a tag. I'm going to be needing Christmas cards if I don't get started. First I will say that the card look much better in person. Because of the pinecone I had to use my camera which is not my strong point and the card is very shimmery and would not photograph well.
Anyway, I made my distress mist with bundled sage and a tad of broken china.  I could have used the perfect pearl mists, but I wanted a richer color so I used the distress reinkers. Instead of a tag I used the Christmas ornament die cut. I made my own masks by cutting out the evergreen bough with the pinecone/evergreen die twice. I added the pinecone as embellishment on the ornament. The background, a shimmery vellum, was embossed with the Christmas words texture fade.
