Christmas in July: WOW Gift Tag

Good afternoon!  We're about to start the closing general session for this years convention and we've been having so much fun we can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! has in store for us.  Since it's so hot year and back home in VA I decided to help cool things off a little by sharing the gift tag I made for a swap group I'm in.  This gift tag uses the Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Decorative Label Framelits, and Striped Embossing Folder.  I sponged around all the edges with Smoky Slate ink and stamped on the Silver cardstock with the Dictionary Stamp set (make sure to let this sit since it will take a little longer to dry than our regular cardstock).  I wrapped a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon around the tag.
The snowflake was made with the new Simply Pressed clay.  I colored it with Bermuda Bay reinker and pressed it into the Simply Pressed Holiday Cookie stamp to get the 3D snowflake (I did sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds into the mold before adding the clay so it really sparkles in person.  The greeting is from the Greetings of the Season stamp set and I sponged around the edge.  The final touch was to add some Whisper White bakers twine for the attachment.
This tag is so fun it'll definitely dress up holiday packages and as an added bonus it actually matches one of the new Designer Series Papers that's coming out next month in the Holiday catalog. 
I hope you're enjoying the projects this week, I haven't even shared them all and remember if you want to make some of these projects join me next Sunday for the special "The Boys are Away, Let's Play Just Cards Class".  We'll be making 5 of the cards I made for swaps that you're sure to love.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
