Buffalo Plaid Christmas Tree Card

I had a package of 6 really old 
flat, die cut trees I totally forgot about.
I had them were stored in a weird spot,
so I hadn't come across them in a long time!
I decided that although I have plenty of
cards already made this year, 
I would turn them into cards anyway
otherwise I may forget about them again ;)

They started out simpler, with no snowman
or greenery. Just the cute die cut tag and twine.
I liked them well enough that way, then decided
I'd like them better if I added something else.
I went through a few ideas before settling on
the much more time consuming snowman
and greenery spray idea. 

I stamped the background with the Buffalo Plaid stamp by Stampin' Up!

The greeting, die cut tag, paper punch leaves are also from Stampin' Up!

Martha Stewart branch paper punch (pine looking shapes)
and snowman punch.

Baker's twine.

I'm thinking about adding an eyelet and twine loop at the top so 
it could be hung since it is not a card that stands up. It is flat, there
is no fold/second layer to it.  Or maybe a piece of magnet glued to the
back so it can be displayed on a refrigerator? 

I probably won't be posting as often now since I've made more than
enough cards.  Time to get started on scrapbooks again anyway. 

Merry Christmas!

Thanks for looking =)
