Cheery Lynn Designs Penguin Snowflake Tag

Over at Cheery Lynn Designs, the challenge this week is to create a Tag.  I love making tags, they can have lots of elements and yet still be fairly quick to make.  My tag today is all about snow! I began with a blue tag base, 3.25 x 6.25 inches.  I cut the top corners off at an angle.  Next came a white layer, 3 x 6 inches embossed with my Snowflake Flurries Embossing plate.  I die cut my Snowflake Mesh border from white card stock.  I used spray adhesive to adhere it to blue card stock then layered it on the bottom edge of the tag.  I added this adorable penguin, Willie from Scrappers Delights, popping him up for some dimension. 

Next came my snowflakes, what fun I had mixing and matching them until I found a combination I liked.  Cheery Lynn has fabulous snowflakes.  To create mine, I started with Laced Pine Snowflake in blue on the bottom, Snowflake #2 in white in the middle, then Snowflake #4 on top in blue.  The little white star in the center of the top snowflake is the drop out from the center of the Laced Pine Snowflake.  I used pop dots between the layers for more dimension.  Lastly I used my Add a Flourish die set, I thought these mimic'd the embossing pretty well.
