25 Days of Christmas Tags: Day 7

Day 7 of Tracey McNeeley's 25 Days of Christmas Tags is sponsored by Birch Press Design.


When I think of this company, I think of their intricate, layered dies, such as the ones Tracey used for her tags today: 


But since I don't have any dies like that, I had to improvise. Here's what I did: 


This is a giant snowflake, 4¼ inches across. I acquired it from Ardyth some time ago, and I have no idea who makes it. Isn't it pretty? After cutting it from textured red cardstock, I cut a circle from silver glitter cardstock to fit the central portion of the die, then a larger white circle for contrast and so there'd be a surface to write on. I think I have also discovered the perfect tag/keepsake ornament combo. 


One last tag for Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Christmas Gift Tag challenge. 
For tons of inspiration, be sure to look through this entire week of tags! Remember, there are prizes up for grabs for commenting on designers' posts as well as making tags inspired by the ones you see. Come and join the fun! 



Supplies: white, Bazzill textured red & American Crafts silver glitter cardstock, (?) snowflake & Spellbinders circle dies, foam tape

Brilliant idea for using the ornament inspiration. where there is a will there is a way. I'm hard pressed for this one myself. Fabulous job on the tag!!!
