The JOY stamp is from a recent Sheena Douglas set stamped with perfect medium and heat embossed with gold before embossing the background using a snowflake embossing folder (possibly a do crafts one, the Sizzix one has the flakes closer together). I dotted clear rock candy distress stickles all over the snowflakes.
The tag is cut from kraft card. For the background after diecutting the foliage I used the waste piece as a stencil and inked through with Iced Spruce distress ink and then embossed with wow white pearl powder. I also used Iced spruce to lightly distress the snowflake background. I think I finally managed to master the pine cone's die cut with a Sizzix alterations die, thanks to some great demonstrations :) I frosted the edges of the cones with the clear rock candy distress. I roughened the edges of the tag and distressed with iced spruce before adding some gold embossing. Finally I frayed a scap of fabric and made a bow.
