Country Snowman Tag - Day 8 of 12 Days of Christmas Tags w/ Treasure Box Designs

I'm so excited to share today's tag as we go into Day 8 or 12 Days of Christmas Tags with 

But first it is important to share Day 7's winner:

Sarah M. you are the lucky winner of your choice of file from any tag that I have made through Day 7. You have 5 days to contact me and can do so either through email or by personal message on my Facebook page, M Miranda Creations.

Now for today's tag!!! I just love the Bobble Buddies Country Snowman and knew I had to use him to make a tag. I also made a matching card.

Aren't they just adorable!!! And really pretty easy to put together - even the pine cone. And for those of you who are use to using vinyl, please remember that paper is like vinyl. It's not all the same. When cutting the top of the pine cone, you must use paper that is a good quality or it will shred while cutting. Also use double cut for the pine cone and the evergreen branches. That will assure that all the paper has been cut even in the corners and such!

I wanted to make sure the colors in the background were rustic because of the county look of the snowman. I meant to use the wood grain embossing folder on the background of the tag the way I did on the card, but I got so excited putting it together that I forgot about it. Oh well, I still really like how it turned out!!! 

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Christmas Wishes set and the twine is Totally Natural from Trendy Twine (Annie's Paper Boutique).

Hope you like today's set as much as I do. It is my favorite so far!!!

Today's Blog Candy:
