This card was inspired by the Creative Crew September sketch challenge. This is actually the second card I made using the sketch because I had read the instructions too quickly and missed the part about doing a Holiday card! This one is my do-over. I used the Pines & Poinsettias set I received with my Christmas box to stamp the images on the tag and beneath the windowpane accent.
The tag was too long to fit on the card where I wanted it, so I shortened it by cutting the bottom off and adding a strip of patterned paper on which I had punched the corners with the Corner Rounder. At the top, I slid a punched Tab in the slit of the tag (I got this idea from the clever Carrie Gaskins) and added a matching button threaded with linen thread. I added a touch of sparkle with glimmer brads and a border cut out of red glimmer paper using the Tasteful Trims die.
