I was inspired by this tag card by my good friend, Nancy Littrell.
I used some long-retired SU! Christmas DP and some new dies that I recently purchased.
The ornament is layered and glued together. I cut two of the ornament (one from silver and one from red glimmer paper). I cut out the center of the red ornament using my smallest circle nestie and then adhered it on top of the silver ornament. I die-cut the red snowflake and adhered it in the opening.
I find it hard to cut out small and intricately designed dies from glimmer (glitter) paper ... especially if there's a plastic-y backing paper. I found that if you cut it upside-down (with the backing paper facing upwards), it works much better.

Wow Loll....gorgeous tag, dsp, layout and amazingly beautiful glimmer ornament. BTW, I cut the glimmer paper just like you described. I have used sticky strip for attaching the glimmer papers and for intricate cuts I have used Tombow liquid glue, but you do have to hold it down for awhile to adhere.
Thank you so much Loll for playing and honoring me with your gorgeous tag card.

Thank you so much for the tip about cutting the glitter paper upside down. It can really be a challenge to get nice clean cuts! LOVE this tag card. AN dI am so impressed that you have started on Christmas cards and tags. Kove the IO snowflakes! I am going to look for those. Love your ornament and the dp you used is perfect!
