Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 2

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my Day 1 tag & card here.)

For my tag, I used my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Duos 1 tag die and some
music note patterned paper (I can't remember the brand -- sorry!)

I added a snowflake (diecut from white patterned paper using the largest
snowflake from Wplus9's Snowflake Trio Dies), my number (diecut
using PTI's Book Print Number dies) and a couple buttons stitched on with twine.

For my card, I used the same patterned paper as my background and
the same snowflake dies diecut from white cardstock.

I stamped my sentiment using Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings stamp set

Thanks for looking!

What a fun idea for an advent calendar, Leigh! It's going to look so beautiful when it's filled with it's adorable tags! Love that music note paper, and love the number layered over the snowflake. Such a beautiful matching card, too, and bonus that it's flat enough for mailing. :)

I'm not looking forward to "real" snow, but I do love paper snowflakes!! Did you make your clothespins too? It really adds a pop of colour along with the buttons. So cute!!

I love this idea for an advent tag Leigh. Love the number and snowflake over the edge. Beautiful card. The gold sequins just add that little extra.
