I have noticed that tags are all the rage right now and even though I seldom use tags myself on packages I decided to make one and put it on a card for either winter time sending or even as a Christmas or New Year's card. After all, tis' the season for snow too! And, I think they said we might have some in our forecast for the next day or so. I am told it won't be too much though! But I would rather have snow than freezing rain.
I planned to enter this into the Mod Squad Challenge but apparently they already closed the thread for it. The rules must have been changed, but at least I tried to enter it.
I used the colors of white, red and silver. My center snowflake in the tag is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs. And, the other snowflakes and the sentiment are from the Gina K. Designs set called Fun Year Round which is illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger.
I hand cut the tag and used that as the focal image for my card. The snowflake was die cut out of the white part and then I added silver behind it. By die cutting another red snowflake I was able to glue that into the empty spot and have my flake backed by the silver paper. I then mounted the tag onto red paper and fussy cut around the edges to create a border.
I stamped several more snowflakes around on the base of the card as well. In the upper corners I added corner embellishments which are from a die by Cheery Lynn Designs. I always thing they dress up a card so much.
I completed the design by adding a silver snowflake ribbon to the tag which is from American Crafts and some gems. The center white pearl in the big snowflake die is from Eyelet Outlet and the other silver pearls with the white pearls around it are from Basic Grey.

Well, since it is dreary rain filled day I thought I might as well do a little creative activity with stamps and dies. I don't know about you, but days like this tend to make me sleepy unless I can keep busy. So at least I stayed awake. LOL
As always I so appreciate your visits and comments.
