HO HO HO...Merry Christmas!

I posted this for the challenge this week! I made it awhile ago and since this is a super busy wek for me...and I LOVE how this turned out I wanted to show it off again!!
And you thought Christmas only came in December!! Here is a very special gift tag that I made earlier and finally finished it up for a contest at TODAYSMAMA! I wanted to see if I could cut some reallyyyyyy small cuts! I think it turned out so cute!!!

I started with a couple of acrylic tags from Clear Scraps. I used some of my white acrylic paint and painted snow along the bottom side of the larger scrap. While this dried I started up my big bug and cut out the following using my Joys of the Season cartridge on shadow.

sleigh 3/4 inch
reindeer 1 1/4 inch....I chalked the front of his chest with white chalk.
polar bear 1/2 inch
snowman 3/4 inch
trees 1/2 to 1 1/4 inch...I made 16 trees total using two different color of papers. I chalked the edges of my trees with white chalk.

From Christmas solution cartridge I cut a 2 inch blackout snowflake.

With Zip Dry I glued the sleigh and reindeer to the front side of the smaller tag.

On the front side of the larger tag I glued 8 of the assorted size trees. I then glued on the polar bear and snowman. On the back side of the large tag I glued on another 8 assorted size trees making sure to stagger for a forest effect.

With markers I inked in the details of bear, snowman, dear and sleigh. Then I stickled snowflakes in the sky on both tags and in the snow on the large tag.

I used Diamond Dust for the edges of my two inch snowflake but Stickles would work great also! Punched a whole for hanging and put all 3 pieces on a ring. Using assorted ribbons to add a dash of color and it was done!

I hope you like it as well as I do!
