Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Holiday - cards, tags, gifts

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a holiday project. I made a little gift set using the Snowman die set (linked below) - I always love the images of snowmen with upturned faces, so I love that these dies can be used in this orientation too.

Here's the card I created -I used the Snow Globe die set (linked below), and rather than making a shaker card, I diecut a piece of acetate and embossed it with a snowflake folder, then laid it over the circle.

Here's a tag with a twin snowman...

...and a smaller tag using the same Snowman set but in a different orientation. The top view was really fun to put together!

These are the die sets I used:

Snowman Set
Small Snowflake Set

Snow Globe

  14. Hi Dina! May I ask you how you glued the acetate to your card? Thanks!

    1. Hm, it's been a while since I made these! I think it may just be adhered at the bottom where it doesn't show. I really don't remember.
