Today's card features a tag created for Ellen Hutson 12 Tags of Christmas with a Feminine Twist 2015The Day 4 theme features snowflakes. I was inspired by the arrangement of greenery and snowflakes so artfully placed on Kay Miller's tag; however, I used more traditional colors.

I stamped three of the images from the Papertrey Ink Spruce & Springs set using Gumball Green, Sour Apple and Pure Poppy inks and then cut out with matching dies from the Spruce and Sprigs die set. I stacked and arranged them onto a tag cut from Smoky Slate cardstock with the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale #5 die and then anchored with a snowflake cut with the Stitched Snowflake Lawn Cuts die set. I tucked in a smaller snowflake left over from another project and after threading some snowflake ribbon through the tag hole I added a red jewel in the snowflake center.

I prepared the background with textured cardstock, a strip of patterned paper and the sentiment cut out from red cardstock using a die from the Papertrey Ink One Liners set.

We are off to church soon. It occurred to me that this will be the last week to attend our church for the rest of the year as we have two family gatherings this coming weekend and then we will be headed out of town after that. It makes me sad but hopefully we will attend Christmas Eve services with family there.
