Snow Jar Tag

While we have Christmas in the heat of summer, sometimes snowy things make it feel cooler - I guess it's the colours.

When I was a kid I had one of these shakers with a house scene in it; haven't got a clue where it went, but now I have a couple to put out at Christmas for the grandchildren to play with and they love them too.  I even have a sneaky play now and then, I'm really just a big kid.  ;-D

I stamped the jar, house, trees.  Stamped the snow and heat embossed it in white (a little just happened to get on the trees too), then using a mask sponged distress inks for the sky.  The lid is coloured with gold Sharpie pen.  I glued then flocked the ground snow and house roof.  Metallic glitter tape bands and (using a mask) a border stamp of trees and reindeer.  The a soft grey-blue for the stamped snowflakes.  Edges inked.
