Snowflake Tag

Hello and Welcome
Meet today's card.
Very clean and simple but has an elegant feel to it with the silver snowflakes.

So here's what I did.
I began with a piece of white cardstock and stenciled the background using this great stencil 
called Simple Mosaic and some gray Memento ink.
Next, I cut the tag using a die from Avery Elle and set it aside.  I die-cut 2 snowflakes from Penny Black, pressed them onto my Versamark pad and heat embossed them with silver powder.  I glued the smaller one over the larger one to give more of a substantial look to the snowflake.  Love how it turned out.  I glued them onto the tag and added a drop of Silver Nuvo Drops to the center.  
I pop-dotted the finished tag over the stenciled bkg. then added some silver twine.
The sentiment was stamped using my Misti.  It is a new stamp set from Penny Black 
called Christmas Sentiments and I have to tell you, I am getting so much use from this set!  The 
sentiments are different sizes and different fonts, many straight line sentiments which work great with this kind of a card.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

How gorgeous Karen,the grey and silver look so elegant together with that pretty mosaic stencilling and silver embossed star, and love the banner shape you have given the tag, also the silver cord tied in a bow through the hole at the top finishes it beautifully, together with that classic PB sentiment. x
