See this video for "out of the box" die cutting:

Instructions: Trace around tag on Kraft cardstock, twice. Cut with scissors or paper trimmer. Stamp the snowflake background three times, from top to bottom with Versamark. Do this on one only, the other is to cover the back of the tag. Dust with embossing powder and heat set. Glue this to tag. Flip over and punch out the hole at the tag top, I used my Crop-a-Dile. Trim any excess around tag with scissors. Glue the back to the tag, using the front hole as a guide, punch again so hole goes all the way through. Stamp the largest snowflake trio, and another of choice onto Kraft cardstock with Versamark. Stamp each twice for a total of eight flakes. Dust with embossing powder and heat set. Cut with matching dies. Cut a frame for the wreath using the second and third largest Spellbinder die, taped together, and cut from dark drab green cardstock. Cut nine of the mistletoe looking branch from each color green cardstock for a total of eighteen. Snip each one of these in half. Glue these to the wreath frame, alternating colors and turning some out and some in toward center. Add little clusters of three nail heads to wreath, about an inch apart. Add glue to half of the back of the wreath only and place in about 1" from the left side of tag and center it from top to bottom and press in place. I fluffed up my branches a bit with my finger.

Using the stamp paint and a craft mat, or an old place mat, CD case of large acrylic block, tip out about a pea size of paint and mist it with water and stir together to make a thin soup. Scrunch up seam binding and pounce into the mixture. No need to saturate the entire thing, leaving some of the plain red to make it variegated. Hang to dry. I hung mine outside and it dried while I was coloring the snowman. Dab the chipboard with Gesso and set aside to dry.

Stamp Frosty onto white cardstock using the cocoa ink. These colors are from a Copic class I taught on three types of snow, blue, gray, and this one I call vintage. Color the Frosty body and bits of snow beneath him using E42, 40, W1, 00, and use the colorless blender to soften edges. Color his nose using E19, & 15. Cheeks are R00. Color his cap using E79, 57, & 53. Color the scarf using YG97, 93, & 91. The reds on the ornaments are R39, 37, & 35 and the green parts are YG97, 93, & 91. Using the video listed above as a guide cut out the top part of Frosty. Trim around ornaments and curve the bottom with scissors. Brush on a little glue to the snow and on the chipboard and sprinkle with rock candy glitter. When dry attach Frosty to tag using pop-dots. I cut a Pop-dot in half and added it behind the "s" of the chipboard and then glue to the bottom of the letters and placed it as pictured inside the wreath. Using pop-dots and glue add in the snowflakes as pictured. Cut a 7" strip of ribbon, fold and tie a knot at the bottom and slip through the hole in the tag and glue knot in place. Use the rest of the ribbon to make a loose many looped bow and glue to the top to finish your tag.
