Sue's Snowman Tags

In Sue's November 1st mailing, I included 4 sets of 4 tags. These are the third set - the Snowman tags:

 I used the Tim Holtz snowman die and some lovely paper from K&Co. One of my very favourite Christmas paper packs - I could have just FRAMED some of the papers in that pack!  After cutting the shapes and punching the hole at the top for the bakers twine, I sponged the edges with blue dye ink.

 The lacy image from the (Stampin' Up) Mixed Bunch set reminds me of snowflakes, so I stamped that on white card stock then punched it out with the coordinating punch and inked the edges. I also stamped one of the circles from the same set and punched those out with a 3/4" circle punch (Stampin' Up).

The white snowflake was in my stash ... it's from a Sizzix die that cuts two similar sized snowflakes. Since I seem to prefer the shape of the other snowflake, I've been adding these ones to a little box to use 'one day'. They worked perfectly with the punch! Everything was layered with foam tape, and then I added a red gem to the center of the circles.

The back was finished using a dog tag punch (Stampin' Up) to pen the To/From on with, then the red & white bakers twine was threaded through the punched hole in his hat. These tags just make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by today!
