Getting ready for Christmas

I absolutly adore making tags, (there are more tomorrow on my blog!)
Nothing looks better than a parcel, covered with brown paper and a lovely ribbon with a handmade tag
I had some free time today, bit too cold for gardening which was the plan, so to the craft desk I did go
I used the lovely image from the Paper Shelter
Getting Ready for Christmas
That you can find here 
I printed it out twice so I fussy cut the trousers, socks, jacket and hat to give some depth .
I coloured with Graph'It markers and used glamour dust for sparkle.
I used a lovely Christmas embossing folder and finished off with some Holly, White Liquid Pearls, Bakers Twine,and a lovely sparkly flower from stash
I would like to enter this into

Fabulous design. I love the diecutting through the embossing, although I presume you diecut first and then embossed, cos I am guessing that die cutting after would have flattened the embossing?

Anyhow, it's a fabulous tag!

Thanks for sharing
