Joy Double Tag

Hello. I've been busy making lots of tags for gifts. I love to use homemade tags on my Christmas gifts, so I make several every season. Today I created my first ever double tag using Sizzix Originals Die - Tags, Scallop Combo 2, which I believe you can find on clearance now. I love the shape and size of this tag die.

I die cut two of the tags from Neenah paper. The smallest stamp from the Stampendous Cling Jumbo Snowflakes set was heat embossed with white embossing powder. Next I stamped an old A Muse wooden snowflake stamp otro the tag with Faded Jeans Distress Ink in both first and second generation stamping. I then lightly went over the whole tag with the same DI. Notice how the embossed snowflake resists the ink. 

The joy and snowflake die cuts is from the W Plus 9 Seasonal Sentiments die, also cut from Neenah paper. I edged around the word joy with the distress ink and then added the snowflake on top of the "o" in joy. A white pearl was adhered to the center of my embossed snowflake.

On my second tag, I merely used a Julie Fei Fan Balzer mini stencil from my stash and inked with the distress ink. The two tags were attached with a thin white ribbon and I have another tag for my stash.

I'd like to enter this into the newest Tag You're It! Challenge #11,  inspired by this beauty by Maureen Merritt.

I am also entering into this month's Inspiration Journal at Inspiration Emporium - Happy Holidays.
