12 Tags of Christmas Day 10

Oh what fun, it is to craft, a snowman tag to-daaaaay!  Loved this one.  Didn't have the snowman die, but I had the snowflake and snowman texture fades.  So, I embossed grungepaper twice with the snowman texture fade and cut it out along the embossing lines.  This snowman seems to be smaller than the die, but that's okay, I just stamped and embossed a little "let it snow" sentiment in the upper right corner.  As you can see, my plastic frosted a bit around the snowflakes when I embossed it - it's kinda busy, but I like it IRL.  I used some copper, uh, "thingies" that I found at a flea market this summer in place of the washers - I think they're rather festive.  The only thing I might change, is that I'm thinking maybe I should white-wash that little word charm so that it shows up better - it says "believe." Yep.  Gonna.

Have a fabulous Friday my friends.  Only two days left of tags.... I think I might go into withdrawal after that, LOL!

Your tag turned out wonderful!!I went the same route as you-no die. Seeing yours I just remembered I didn't put my" wonderful" tag on. Isn't the embossed plastic cool.
