Get Frosted with Me!!!

OPUS GLUEI is changing things up for the Holidays, two weeks for the each of the next few challenges. Y-E-A-H !!! The holidays are busy, busy, busy for us all, so this should relieve some of the stress for those who choose to play along.

This challenge is to GET FROSTED. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?!?! But, you know those tricksters over there, they aren't talking about getting your drink on. NOPE! They mean snow, snowmen and those types of FROSTED items. Rats!

Anyway, I made some last minute Christmas cards and some always needed gift tags.

Above card was made with scraps from a project last year.
Even the punched out snowflakes.
I just jazzed them up with a little bling in the centers.

Above scraps were jazzed up with some ribbon, some sequins and dymo tape.

I used some bling I got this summer at CKC Virginia Beach, dymo tape, felt snowflakes and brads. I can't remember who made them. They are from last year. I didn't have ribbon in the width I wanted, so I put 3 strips of skinny ribbon to make one wide red stripe. Worked pretty well.

Snowman tags are 1 inch, 1.5 inch and 2 inch circles seperated by foam mounting tape.
I still need to add either a scarf or limb arms. Still playing with that one.

Eyes are liquid enamel. Noses are little scraps of orange paper.
Idea came from my Stampin' Up club.
The one from the club uses brads for eyes.
I like the black from the enamel better. Don't you?
(I think you would if you were able to choose between the brads and the enamel, but since I didn't post the one with the brads, you'll just have to trust me on this one.)

Above picture was posted just because I like it.

Now it's your turn to GET FROSTED.
