Merry Christmas Card in Shades of Gray

Based on this card I'm still in neutral!  It's a rainy gray day here but no snow yet (thank goodness).

This Irresistibly Floral Special Designer Series Paper has been waiting to be used for too long.  It is designed to have color added and the design resists ink, but I just left it sans ink so it's white on white.  I used the back side of the same paper to make the tag, using a portion of one of the Lots of Labels Framelits to cut the tag.

I used a strip of the striped washi tape from the Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape along the left edge of the Smokey Slate base card.  When I added the Designer Series Paper I didn't like the transition from washi to white paper so I added a length of Black Bakers Twine.

I stamped "Merry Christmas" in Night of Navy, the snowflakes in Versamark then embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  Both of these images are from Flurry of Wishes in the Annual Catalog.  I used the Snow Flurry Punch to punch the snowflakes out – so easy!

To finish the tag off I added a ruffled length of Silver 5/8" Satin Ribbon at the bottom, and tied a length of 1/8" Smokey Slate Stitched Ribbon through the hole I punched with the 1/8" Handheld Punch at the top.  The silver Mini Jingle Bells were tied on with Silver Metallic Thread.

Thanks for looking!  When ordering from my online store use Host Code 7ZKGME4F for orders $149 or less.  Orders of $150 qualify for free items as host benefits so no need to add the Host Code.
