Insert the 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" white rectangle into the Woodland Embossing Folder so the tree trunks are vertical on the horizontal rectangle. Place the folder with the paper inside on your die cutting and embossing tool and run through the machine.
Adhere the dry embossed white rectangle to the Night of Navy rectangle and then to the front of the Seaside Spray card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Tags Tags Tags Photopolymer Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp. Put a piece of Grid Paper on top to protect the mat from ink.
Mount the set of three Christmas tags image from the Tags Tags Tags Set on Block I. Ink up only the "Bring On the Merry" woods and birds image on the end using the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp the tag in the center of the small white rectangle.
Pick out the set of 3 tags die from the Trio of Tags Dies. Put it on top of the stamped tag on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so the tag with the three little holes cut in each end is centered over the tag. Run through the tool. Use the die brush tip and/or paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces if needed.
Use the Real Red Marker to color in the birds.
Unlock the Everyday Label Punch. Slide the larger Seaside Spray strip into the punch. Punch.
Adhere the tag cut out to the center of the label punch out.
Use the small hole punch to punch a hole through the matted tags on the left side.
Cut a 4" piece of Seaside Spray 1/4" Metallic Ribbon.
Thread the tag onto the ribbon and get it centered.
Cut an 8" piece of Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine.
Tie the twine in a small bow around the ribbon just above the tag. Trim the ends of the twine and ribbon.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the matted tag with ribbon attached to the front of the card in the lower right corner.
Pick out the double, small snowflakes die from the Trio of Tags Dies. Put it on top of the small strip of Seaside Spray Cardstock on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so it is on one end of the strip. Run through the tool. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and paper-piercing tool on the Take Your Pick to remove the pieces. Repeat on the other end of the strip so you have 3 little snowflake cut outs.
Use a Mini Stampin' Dimensional to adhere one of the small snowflake cut outs to the middle top of the card. Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere another in the lower left corner and the final one to the upper right side of the tag.
Pick out 3 white snowflake sequins from the Snowflake Sequins using the putty tip of the Take Your Pick tool. Use small dots of Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the sequins to the center of the small snowflake cut outs.
Pick out 2 small, silver, circle sequins from the Snowflake Sequins using the putty tip of the Take Your Pick tool. Use small dots of Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the sequins randomly to the front of the card.
