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.
