Christmas cocoa tag

I don't often make tags, but I am sometimes asked for them at Christmas, so thought perhaps I ought to get some done.

For this I've used a ready coloured Meljen's designs image called 'Christmas cocoa', tearing the edges of the card and distressing first with shabby shutters and then gently with broken china distress ink. I then took a scrap piece of yellowish card and brushed the edges with the two distressed inks and then stamped a variety of snowflakes using broken china ink, from one of my favourite Christmas stamp sets - 'doodle frames holiday' by Inkadinkado.

I found a scrap of ribbon that matched up - it's a blend of yellow, green and blue - to complete the tag - I glued it gently because it would have been two thick to knot.

This is for:
