25 Days of Christmas Tags

Tracey McNeely puts on a fabulous event on her blog every November... "25 Days of Christmas Tags", with all kinds of wonderful inspiration... and encouragement to play along.  I was inspired by Tracey's pretty purple ink blended tags with white embossed snowflakes on Day One, and decided to make a whole bunch of my own:
I used a pretty Pearl embossing powder from WOW, using three larger snowflakes, and then filled in the empty spaces with a couple of smaller flakes:
 Here is my blue/purple strip... I started out trying a few different purple ink blends... and settled on a blue/purple mix of three colours sponged randomly on my strip of paper.  Even though I wasn't thrilled with the colours that I started out with, they ended up being really gorgeous tags:
 And here is my blue/green version:
 The strips were 3 1/2" x 12", and I cut them each into 6 pieces... to end up with 12!
 Each piece was mounted to a slightly larger piece of grey cardstock, and I added the sentiment with some pop dots.  I'm not sure what I'll do yet about twine or ribbon... so am just leaving them like this for now.

These tags are beautiful, and it is so smart of you to mass produce like this. Not a bit of waste here. Thanks so much for playing along at the 25 Days of Christmas Tags.
