As I've made all the Christmas cards I need for myself I thought I'd set to and make some tags. I bought these super sized tags at the SECC recently and as they're really smooth they're great for inky techniques.

Talk about cutting things fine, I'd forgotten all about this the CDACPC6 which ends in about 7 hours time! Luckily I'd inked the tag earlier today and left it to flatten so was able to put this together quite quickly! Tag is stamped and embossed with a snowflake , then inked with different shades of blue DI  and finally over stamped with a different snowflake stamp (ancient stamp from QVC)  in the darkest blue. Image is from Designed 2 Delight and has been coloured with distress inks and mounted 3d. Tag is finished with some recently acquired bakers twine and a gorgeous blue snowflake ribbon bow.
