Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 1

So, 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.

For my first tag, I used my PTI Shaker Shapes: Snow Globe dies,
along with my Wplus9 Winter Woodland stamp set & coordinating dies.


I used some Webster's Pages patterned paper on my background.
I layered my deer diecut (which was stamped and heat embossed in gold) over top, as well as my snow bank that I made using a Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Border die.
The snowflakes were also diecut using the Snow Globe dies and the number was diecut
from smokey shadow cardstock, using my PTI Book Print number dies.

And, I used the same patterned paper, dies and stamps to make my card....


The sentiment was stamped using Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings stamp set.

Thanks for looking!
