I started with a piece of white glitter card stock that I had run through the Cuttlebug with a snowflake embossing folder. It wasn't big enough to cut a label so I positioned the paper to cut the top part with my new Tim Holtz Sizzex baroque label die.. The lighting really picked up the irredescent glitter of the tag so it's hard to see the dimension of the snowflakes. I stayed with the white theme and added white leaves for wings, a white poinsettia, sugar gem center, and foam glittered snowflakes. I used part of one snowflake for the crown and added satin puffy stars. I placed ribbon along the bottom to anchor the design. A bow didn't seem to work so I ended up using a silver doily.
The angelic face is my mother's. I made this in her honor as she passed away several years ago in the month of January. I'm going to keep this tag in my new 2012 calendar book that I'm in the process of completing.
This tag is for the Tag You're It challenge hosted by our January guest designer, Lynn Stevens (Trash to Treasure Art), at the Flying Unicorn.
