christmas tag

happy saturday :) heres a little something i made this morning while waiting to go bowling.
im entering it into a couple of challenges.
DLART: linky party for december anything goes AND dianas thankful thursday challenge:red and green
3 girl Jam : christmas project. theyre having a fun bloghop so go check that out!
my sheri crafts:decorate a package bag or tag
word art wednesday: anything goes. they have a sweet freebie digi  message you can use also.
fantabulous cricut challenges: snow
little scrap pieces : its beginning to look a lot like christmas
tons of fun and inspiration on each of these challenge blogs and im sure theyd all just love for you to play along too.
for this tag i cut out a tag with my cricut and tagsbagsboxesandmore cartridge, then traced it onto a piece of cardboard, cut it out with scissors then pulled off the top piece of paper from the cardboard to expose the corrugated part. then i painted it with distress paint (picket fence) once that dried i applied a bunch of chunky glitter. the tree is cut from the joys of the season cartridge. i inked it up with a little  SU stamp pad and also used my signo white gel pen . i added some clear rhinestones. for the snow mound i applied some snow-tex and more chunky glitter ( sorry couldnt get the photo to show that)

then i finsished it off with this beautiful crinkle ribbon from 3girlsjam (winter bundle, hollyberry and mistletoe .its so gorgeous!) i tied on a cute little silver bell. the star is a hatpin i adhered between my layers of the tree.

hope you like my sweet little tag :) thanks so much for stopping by your sweet comments always make me smile thank you for that too :) happy crafting! xxxshelly

I LOVE everything about it. What's more - I have most of the supplies to do this, so I might just have to "case" this one as I'd never think to do it myself. Thanks so much for the inspiration!
