Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Days 20 & 21

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 previous tags & cards here.)
 
For my tag, I used patterned paper from Betsy's Tinsel & Tags patterned paper pack,
along with PTI's Shaker Shapes: Snow Globe dies & Tinsel & Tags dies.
 
 
I diecut my "20" using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
 
For my coordinating card, I used the same patterned paper.


 
I diecut another one of the Tinsel & Tags diecuts and adhered it to my patterned paper background.
I diecut another piece of white cardstock using one of my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border dies
I stamped my sentiment using Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings stamp set.
 
 For my tag for Day 21, I used  PTI's Shaker Shapes: Ornament dies &
PTI's Tinsel & Tags stamp set and coordinating dies.
 
 
I used the same colours and stamps/dies on my coordinating card....


The stitched rectangle die is Mama Elephant's Femme Frames.
A scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins finish it off.

Thanks for looking!

I am loving your new advent calendar pieces, Leigh! Adorable shapes on these. I am smitten with the snow globe! The winter white snowy woodland scenes are so sweet. Gorgeous matching cards, too!

You're working magic still with #20 and 21. I'm hoping for some PTI to join my collection. One of these days, I'll take the plunge...
