Sparkly Christmas Tag

 The Clean and Simple challenge at Splitcoaststampers today is about "stitched". This is not CAS as we all know it, yet there is ample white space. So, close enough to CAS for me.
 I used My Favorite Things Scallop Cross-Stitch Tag die, which I used to cut the red back panel, and white glitter cardstock to cut the cross stitch panel. For the white panel I added the cross stitch plate to the die. Instead of doing cross stitch I did back stitching in rows, leaving white space in between each row of stitching, which is done in Christmas Green and Christmas Red.  I die cut two snowflakes, one from the red glitter and one from gold glitter cardstock, and glued them together. 
I then glued the snowflakes to the cross stitch panel, added square foam dots between the white and red glitter panels to keep the top panel in place and for dimension between the papers. To finish I tied with gold thread and added a crystal gem to the center of the snowflake.

In case you are wondering, I use DMC thread, which is made in France and a #24 Tapestry Needle. I have linked to one of the kits that I have in my collection below.
