{Paper Smooches} Joyful Tag + Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Giveaway + Video!

 

My very wonderful and talented friend Tracey McNeely asked me to guest for her 25 Days of Christmas Tags and I'm delighted to share this tag and video on Day 22 of her festivities! Tracey has some amazing prizes to give away, including one from Paper Smooches so be sure to head over to her blog for all the details.



I started by die cutting the largest of the Gift Tags 2 dies and applied pearlescent embossing paste using Heidi Swapp's Confetti stencil. While that dried, I die cut the Cool Dudes Icons and stamped their respective images with the Cool Dudes stamp set. Then I coloured them in with Copic markers and embellished the snowlady's outfit with enamel dots.


To ground the snowfamily - oh, how I love that tiny little snowbaby! - I die cut the tag again in white cardstock and glimmer paper. Then I used the Borders 1 and Quotables dies to create the snow hills. After adhering the snowfamily to the tag, I added chevron ribbon and white hemp cord with some silver bells.


Commenting on this post qualifies you to win one of Tracey's amazing prizes!! :)

***
Just a quick reminder that tomorrow is the last day to join in on my SquirrelFest Challenge and Giveaway! I'm giving away Chilly Chums and I Blank You to one lucky winner.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
