Classy Cards Winter Wonderland Tag

Hi friends!  I created this tag for the current Christmas Tags Challenge at the Classy Cards 'n Such blog.  

The tag was cut from a manila folder with a Tim Holtz bigz tag die.  I colored the background with cadillac pink glimmer mist and added shaded lilac distress stain and seedless preserves distress ink spray.  More distress spray colors are going on my wish list.  I am having so much fun blending them and they provide great coverage.  

After the background was blended with a water mister, I began working on the other elements.  The main oval is from Marianne Craftables Lacey Oval and Flower die.  I sponged tumbled glass distress ink on the oval to color it blue and added dots of Dreamweaver Pearlescent Embossing Paste to the sky to mimic falling snow.   

The trees were cut from the Impression Obsession Evergreen Trees die.  I cut three sets of trees from white card stock, then colored one set by sponging purple distress ink over it.  I layered and glued the trees in place and then added glue and sprinkled Cloud Nine Microfine glitter on the top trees.  

The snowflakes were cut from Impression Obsession's Small Snowflake die set.  I embossed most using Stampendous Frantage Embossing Powder but some were covered with clear stickles.  This was my first time using Frantage EP.  The effects it creates are amazing.  It covers so well and has such beautiful sparkly bits.  I found it works a little better heated from underneath so the larger pieces don't fly off when hit with the heat tool.  I used Shabby Blue on the corner die cut, Shabby Pink on the snowflakes, and silver on another snowflake also on the Cheery Lynn Holly Lace Flourish die cut that I split into two pieces. To finish, I added a bit of clear tinsel glitter around the outside of the oval.  This card has a lot of sparkle.  My five year old wants me to hang this on our tree this year. Now that's praise!  :)
