Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - Tags

This week at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, we want to see:

'Tags'

There's no sponsor this week...but we'll be picking one lucky entrant to join us as a guest designer!

I started by embossing a piece of blue Core'dinations card using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder...sanding over the raised areas to reveal the lighter core...then adhering it to a plain manilla tag. I added some strips of torn white card to the bottom for some 'snow' and some trees cut using a Marianne Designs die from more Core'dinations card...sanding the edges to look like a dusting of snow. I stamped a sentiment (from the 'Joy to the World' set by Penny Black) and some adhesive pearls to the centres of the embossed snowflakes.


I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.

I LOVE this!!! Everything is just perfect. That is one of my favorite embossing folders, but I never thought to add those pearls. Such a great idea!

Your clean design is fab! Love how you've teared the paper to make the snowy ground, and the embossed paper with snowflakes works so well as the sky.
