Hope you are having a great holiday season. We sure have lots of fun and party at home during Xmas. Our traditional holidays include lots of food, music, drinking, party and more. All these without forgetting about the real meaning of Christmas. Sounds contradictory but it's just our culture. You cannot imagine Christmas in Puerto Rico without all these elements.
We don't have snow. No, we don't. But we love snowmen and the idea of a white Xmas. Crazy people. LOL!
Love the inspiration that current Take it Make it challenge from Craft Stamper magazine is featuring in its blog. It's all about white Xmas.

I decided to make a gift tag. Ideal for a Xmas present it it is a wine bottle. LOL it is a wine bottle tag.
I enjoyed making this project so much. I cut the tag and the open circle. Then bent the corresponding line to make sure I have the base all set before embellishing.
To embellish I first applied some gesso for whiter base; then stamped some snowflakes with blue with the intention to later smooth with more white and end up with just a touch of blue.
I placed a doily and stamped over it doing some silver embossing with the same intention as with blue...end up with just a touch.
I stenciled some modeling paste which I love to work with to provide great texture; then I stamped the snowman and the sentiment. To the snowman I added some glossy accents and glitter; and to the sentiment I added an acrylic circle to emphasize the word "enjoy".
Finishing touches include more glitter, white and tornasol sequins and more. The circle hole was surrounded with a ring that was originally from a patterned paper but I added some gesso to make it opaque.
At the back I also added journaling lines and embellished to provide the space for the message.
Hope you like it. I am linking it up to Craft Stamper mag blog link for the chance to win a great prize. Crossing fingers already.
