With my Cuttlebug, I dry embossed the tag using the Fancy Folder from the Fancy & Floral Frames Set by Tim Holtz (Sizzix) (TH) Embossing Plate.

With small snowflake stamp and embossing Ink, (I used Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Ink), stamp around the tag on both top and bottom where the embossed frame didn’t cover. Heat emboss using white embossing powder, (I used American Crafts Zing.) and your heat tool.

With Stormy Sky Distress Stain, stain around the outside of the frame going right over the heat embossed snowflakes. (The embossing will resist the white part of the snowflake.) Do not stain the center of the frame. With a
