I started out with an Inkssentials #5 Manila Craft Tag and then went to town adding layers of Ranger Distress Inks to create the background (Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Pine Needles, Antique Linen and Vintage Photo) with my Inkssentials Foam Blender. I created more depth around the edges of the tag with the darker inks and then added some "snow" with some watered down white acrylic paint in a Mini Mister :). I then added some of the the snowflakes from the Graphic 45 Nutcracker set to add to my whole snowy theme. I ended up heat embossing them with white embossing powder so that they really stood out against the green backdrop.
I created the fishtail banners with some of the Authentique Peaceful Line and then added a couple of little die cut Spellbinders swirls that were made with vellum and the snowflakes were made with the MFT snowflake die. I finished off the tag with some vintage seam binding and some cappuccino twine for an added little touch of whimsy :)
