Tag to Card, Tag to Notebook

I have a very busy couple of days coming up, and will be showing some "oldies but goodies" from my Splitcoast Gallery. The following is a tag that I had created for a tag exchange. I had some tags left, so I morphed them into Christmas cards.

Most of the products shown are retired from Stampin' Up. I believe that you can achieve the same results with the products available now.I stamped my Bashful Blue image panel with the Aida background (retired), stamped the snowflake (Stampin' Up Snowflakes -retired) with Versamark, and embossed with white embossing powder. I corner photo punched the corners, then sponged the edges of the panel and added a crystal to the center.

I added a white layer, then another Bashful Blue layer stamped with a Linograph background stamp (retired). I once again photo corner punched the corners. I sponged these edges, and added a ribbon from Walmart, finishing my tag.

To add a base to create a card, I layered SU Holiday dp (retired) onto Bashful Blue cardstock. I used Crystal Stickles to highlight the snowflakes on the decorator paper.

After the holiday season, I still had one tag left (yes, I made a huge bunch in the first place...hehe) so decided to use it to alter a small notebook.

My final snowflake is layered onto black this time, then onto unknown decorator paper adhered to the notebook. I added a Stampin' Up gingham ribbon for an accent.

Hope you enjoyed all of the snowflakes! Have a wonderful weekend!
