Happy Christmas

I recently got a shipment from Creative-Depot in Germany, which included this thing which looks like a die but is in fact an embossing gizmo. It made the snowflake impressions for the backdrop to this card. The pass for the second impression flattened the first impression, so I ran the piece of card through the machine again without the 'die', to get both impressions looking similar!
I made this card for the challenge at CAS Christmas which this time is calling for plaid! 


This particular piece is from Pink Petticoat, called Little Check. I'm  not sure if they are still in business, but their printable papers suit me as they are monochromatic and snippets fit well into the CAS genre. I made a tag from a couple of star dies, adding an eyelet, something I haven't used for years and had to look up how to use my Crop O dile on the internet. I added a little gold twine and wasn't quite sure how to stop the ends of it from fraying, so I just dipped them in a little white school glue and let them dry. I guess time will tell whether or not that will work!
