12 Days of Tags with Tim - Day 10

Since my neck of the woods had gotten a whole darned lot of un-seasonable snow when I was making this tag, I went with a Let It Snow theme. Seemed like the right thing to do. I like it well enough, but am chomping at the bit to get Tim's snowflake embossing folder. I think it is so much nicer than this one. At least for a tag like this.

A little different view. Shows all the wonderful, fun layers.

I fussy cut the holly leaves and berries. I don't have the punch Tim used. I had to improvise the top portion of black flecks on the snowman. The "Let It Snow" stamp had them around the words and it looked weird just having them around the words, so I used the end of a paint brush and the Archival Ink pad.

WOW! I really love this tag! The embossed acrylic top gives the effect of the snowman being encased in ice...very, very cool effect!!! Good job!

I know you are tired of me writing this but it is still true - I like YOURS better than Tim's (okay, any day now the paper crafter police are going to make me disappear for this blasphemy). I think this came out so beautifully, love the layers and the colors you chose. I can't wait for the next project in this theme! Get those muggles home fast!
