Monochrome Christmas



Monochrome Christmas
written 12/15/2015

This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies as I have.

Supplies Used:

Tube is called Kylie by Always Smiling. You can purchase it at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=113_568&products_id=16199

Scrap kit is called Black and White by Designs By Joan. You can purchase it at http://scrapsncompany.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=112_115_170&products_id=6523

Mask of your choice. I am using mask #19 from horseplay pasture designs. You can get it at http://www.horseplayspasture.blogspot.com/search/label/Masks

Font of your choice. I am using Shalimar Swash. It is a PTU font so choose whatever you want to use.

Plugins:

Let's Begin:
