Snowman Tag

Evening crafty friends!! I missed entering last weeks challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2 and by golly I was entering this weeks for sure!!! Their theme is Snowmen. How easy!! The hard part was deciding which snowman to use from all the choices. I decided to go with the one on the Smiley Cards cartridge. It is in the #26 spot on the overlay. I cut him at 3.5 inches. I put some glossy accents on his glasses to make them shine. The buttons are from Walmart. And I did a little bit of faux stitching on his hat. The tag was cut from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge. I'm sorry, I failed to note which page, but I do know I used the one that is #10 on the overlay. I cut 5 of these at 6 inches. I glued them all together to give my tag strength. The top layer is from Hobby Lobby's open stock. The two scallops were cut using the QuicKutz Cookie Cutter Die-Nesting Flowers. The 'snowflakes' were cut using Spellbinders Pendants-Contemporary Hearts. I thought they worked perfect for snowflakes. I used some Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the large scallop and snowflakes. Then I coated them, the small scallop and snowman with Sparkle-Seer Shimmer Spritz. I popped up the snowman on one thickness of foam tape. The sentiment is from the Snow Day stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I used my Croc-a-dile to punch the hole in the top and added a grommet. The lace and cording are from my stash. Hope ya'll like my tag!!! :)
