25 Days of Christmas Tags: Jillibean style

Hello, thanks for joining me on the blog!  Today, the Jillibean designers are taking part in the final day of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags with Tracey McNeely.
I reached for the Jillibean holiday stamp and shaker products to create this extra special tag.  You can't go wrong with a trio of cute snowmen inside of a sweet little snow globe, can you?!  This tag could adorn just about any holiday package.

I stamped my snowmen onto watercolor cardstock, so that I would be able to use my Zig clean color real brush markers to bring them to life.  A smattering of iridescent sequins and glass seed beads move about inside my shaker element, to add to the look of falling snow.

I took a bit of a risk by attempting to stamp and heat emboss on the outside of the shaker circle.  If you look closely, you'll see that the heat from my heat gun caused the plastic to warp a little bit, but it was nothing I couldn't mask with some additional miniature tags. *If you try this yourself - be sure to keep your heat gun moving, as not to disfigure and/or melt the plastic completely!

Make sure you check out Tracey's blog for a look at all of the tags designed by the rest of the Jillibean team and for your chance to win an awesome prize from Jillibean Soup!
