Antiqued Glimmers Tree and Tag.

I used White Brilliance to over stamp TAC snowflakes on glimmer background. 
Then ran in through the Swirls embossing folder. Tore white CS to make snow and added glitter. I cut a tree shape from Fun Foam and used it to stamp the trees.  I removed some of the dye ink from the fun foam with a dollar stamp from Michael’s.  The card front was cut with Label Eight dies from Spellbinders, and the tag was punched with Martha Stewart corner punch.  Stamps used are from; Paper Impirations and TPC Studio.

Thanks for stopping in.  Vada
