Use cricut file to cut out both front & back of tag. Using ½ sticky
tape tape off the edges of the back of tag using the window from the
front as your guide. This will be necessary to keep the embossing off
of the edges where you will need the card to stick.

Using the powder tool prep your area and stamp with the grouped
snowflakes from “SNOW DOUBT” stamp set several times to give the look
of falling snow. Using the glacier white embossing powder, sprinkle
over the inked area and tap off excess. Return unused powder to the
container. Heat your heat tool and set the snowflakes. Set aside.

Cut a small square of glitter paper and tape it to the cut out
snowflake at the top of the tag. Using ¼ “ sticky tape, run it around
the opening on the back side of frame. Cut your acetate to 3 1/2 x 3
½. Adhere it to the opening.

Run two strips of scotch form tape ( cut it into thinner strips to fit
around window.) You will need to stack two layers of tape to give you
the depth you need for your glitter diamonds.

On white cardstock stamp out the snowman from “Snow Doubt” and color
with Nuvo markers, colored pencils or whatever you prefer. I used
Nuvo Alcohol Markers. Fussy cut your snowman out or use your Brother
scan n cut.

Using a scrap of white cardstock, I used my scissors to free hand cut
a snowbank and clued it to the front part of the tag and sat my
snowman onto it.

With your window facing down pour your sequins into the window. Very
carefully, remove the backer from the form tape and lay the back of
the tag on top making sure the snowflake background is showing. Be
sure to press all the edges down very securely before picking this up.
IF NOT secure all of your glitter, sequins, etc will fall out and make
a mess. Don’t ask how I know this. Hahaha!

Cut a strip of glitter paper 2 ¾ x 3/8”. Cut dove tails on each side.
Cut a white strip ½” x 2 ¼. On the white, stamp Merry Christmas. I
used the stamps from two different sets. Merry from “Christmas
Stitched Shapes” (I had to cut the stamp to get just the merry. I
used Christmas from “Deck the Halls.” Using Art Glitter Glue, glue the
white piece to the silver banner and attach to the top of the tag.

Punch a hole in the top using the larger hole on the Crop-a-dile.
Pull a piece of red ribbon through and using another piece of ribbon,
tie a bow and attach to the tail that you pulled through the hole.

Using the 3” oval scallop punch, punch out a oval and ink around the
edges with Glamorous ink. Using the To: and From: from the “Stitched
Christmas Shapes”, stamp on the oval and glue to the back.
