Joy, Joy, Joy

Morning all.
What a foul day it is out there. The tail end of Storm Angus might not have hit us with it's full force but the tail has wagged!
So, I've been in my craft room tidying up after a crafty Sunday. As well as some DT cards I made this tag.

The lovely Loll (Stamping with Loll) is again hosting her 12 Tags of Christmas as is Tracey McNeely at 25 Tags of Christmas, so I thought I would join in. We all need tags at this time of year!
To start I cut 2 tags using my Poppy Stamps Stitched Main Street tag dies, one in white one in vellum. Using the inspiration from the tags at Muse, vellum overlay and embossed snowflakes (Lindsey), silver embossed word and soft blue colouring (Stephanie) and the fab word hanger at Fusion. I set about making my tag.
On the larger of the two tags I stamped some snowflakes and embossed them with white EP, then inked the white tag with Tumble glass DI. On the vellum overlay, I added die cut JOYs in white, holographic silver and then heat embossed on one white one with two layers of silver EP, which reminded me of the sketch over at CAS(e) the Sketch!
To attach the two tags together I first assembled a few bits of ribbon from the Christmas box and then threaded a length of silver cord through the back and through the punched holes in the tags, voila.

I'd like to link up over at -
