The background for this tag was made by swooshing the tag through picket fence distress stain and Tumbled Glass & Weathered Wood inkpad ink on a craft sheet (picket fence is the only distress stain I have!), then I stamped snowflakes & little deer from a Kanban stamp.
The bauble ornament, joy & snowflakes were diecut from empty cat food box, then stained with Picket Fence 2 or 3 times, drying with a heat tool between applications to get a good coverage. The crackle effect? Well I have discovered this fantastic crackle stamp on the Alice 1 set from Indigo Blu stamps. It was inked separately with Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood ink, and the stamps heat-embossed with clear embossing powder on each application of ink. The great thing about crackling like this is that the effect you get is much more controllable.
After crackling, the bauble was backed with some music card and the gaps filled in with Glossy Accents for that resin effect.
Two snowflakes were cut from a Sizzix Snowflakes die, crackled, then layered and fixed to the card with Pinflair, adding a small blue pearl to the centre just to finish it off.
My button box was raided again. There wasn't any tuille in the stash, but I did find some enviromesh in the greenhouse! The enviromesh was cut into strips and used to decorate the buttons, bauble and tag.
No snowflake edge die available here, so a couple of snowflakes were diecut from acetate and a couple more punched. These were fixed to the card with some holographic glitter glue to add a little sparkle and simultaneously disguise the fixing.
The edges of the snowflakes were accentuated with a little Picket Fence distress stain.
Some white satin ribbon was added to the bauble along with the tuille.

The snowflakes, bauble & buttons were all fixed to the tag with Pinflair glue.
