Our challenge this month is to make a tag, featuring glitter, a snowman, and Trendy Twine. I don't make many tags so I find them quite challenging, I also wanted to really go outside of the tag box with mine. I think I did just that :)
My tag base is acetate (I use clear report covers purchased on Amazon). I cut the tag shape with my Cameo and then I embossed it in my Big Shot. After it was embossed I used Stickles glitter and carefully filled in all of the snowflakes so they would sparkle. My snowman had to be special too, so I made him 3d! He's from the Silhouette store and I cut him out of glitter cardstock. I hand cut his little orange nose and his eyes are actually black 1/2 pearls. What does every snowman need? Well a braided Candy Cane Trendy Twine scarf of course! He also needed his hat, how about a 3d hat? I also found this 3d hat in the Silhouette store, I assembled it and then I cut it right in 1/2 so that I could use it on my tag, of course his hat needed a bit of Trendy Twine as well. I used a print & cut tag from Silhouette and then I cut 2 snowflakes out of acetate and ran them through my Xyron and glittered them up to layer on my tag. Lastly I colored some ribbon and added some final Trendy Twine to top off my tag.
I love his 1/2 of a 3d hat
see nice and flat on the back
