Day 3 - Snowman Gift Tag, 2014 Christmas Series

This one is the third character tag. 

For this tag I used plain colored cardstock.

The faux stitches were done with a Uniball silver pen using a a fitting technique i explain here.

I inked the edges using Spun Sugar Distress ink on a Tsukineko dauber.

The eyes and the mouth dots are cut, so there's no need to draw them.

The nose was cut out of orange cardstock, and I made highlights with a white gel pen. After that, I applied a coat of Versamark ink and clear embossing powder, heat set it and applied it again. It gives the cardstock a richer color and a nice dimension that makes it look almost like candy.

The stripes on the scarf were made with a purple big point American Crafts Metallic Marker (by the way, the medium ones fit perfectly on the explore and resemble the silver cricut marker that came with your machine). I also made some white accents.

I put everything together with a glue pen and, voilĂ !
