Christmas Tag

I've been having lots of fun making my tags for Christmas this year!

To make this one I resist embossed some snowflakes using clear embossing powder, then used my Inkylicious ink dusters with Distress inks in Evergreen Bough and Shaded Lila over this.

The sentiment is stamped with Stazon ink and I've sprinkled stampendous embossing powder around the edges to frame the tag.
