Sweet Stamps- Christmas Tag

It's Christmas in July at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge for week five is Christmas Tags!

 I used Ranger Distress ink on my Craft mat, spritzed with water and dragged my tag through it- I repeated this 3 or 4 times. Next, I stamped the image on the background after stamping it off once, then restamped it with Creative Inspirations Paint-Winter Frost. I added some scoring lines around the edges and at the top and highlighted it with more ink. I added dies and some more shimmer- using the Sakura Gelly roll pen. I used my Soft tip stylus tool to enhance the embossing on the bird and the bird house.
  The Faux snow is done with Faux Flower Soft- I posted a quick tutorial a while back-see it HERE. (This is so quick and easy!!!).

HERE are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

Merry Christmas Sentiment HERE
Decorative Elements Stamp Set (top stamp on background) HERE
SweetCuts Elegant Leaves Die  HERE
Fence, Bird and Birdhouse die set HERE
Build A Flower Three Die Set (little red flowers)  HERE
