Winter Wonderland

A Christmas card made with one of the tags from this post.  I decided to make cards from the tags after trying to write on the back and realising that wasn't going to work very well on glossy cardstock or bumpy embossing for that matter  : (

Paper - freebie with magazine
Dies - Photo Continental tag nesting dies, QuicKutz Snow Flake
Embossing Folder - Couture Creations Reindeer Silhouette
