Tagging Along

     It's a new month and time for a new challenge on the Great Impressions Blog.  This month the challenge is a Christmas card or Tag.  You have all month to play along for a chance too win a $20 gift certificate to the Great Impressions Store.  I have to tell you all how much I enjoy checking out all the entries.  I try and check everyday and totally love all the wonderful inspiration.  To play a just pop on over to the Great Impressions Blog and add your card or tag to the Challenge post with the Mr. Linky widget

      This month I chose to do a tag.  As all of you know, I love to make tags and Christmas tags are one of my all time favorite things to create.  I used the Snowy Fun stamp to create this one.

     This tag started life as a cardboard box.  I cut off a piece pulled off the first layer to give me the corrugated middle section to work with.  I then cut the cardboard into a tag shape and dry brushed it with white acrylic paint.  The snowman and sentiment are all one stamp that I colored and cut apart.  The individual pieces were mounted onto red and then black card stock.  I wanted more embellishment some I made a bunch of die cut snowflakes and glued them onto the tag before I glued on my stamped pieces.  I added some pearl stems from some old Christmas picks some adhesive rhinestones and some stickles and ta-da Snowy man tag.
