Inspired by Jen Gallacher, Days 2&3

I have been following along with Jen Gallacher's free Holiday Card making series, and was inspired to make a few more cards!
Here is my card inspired by her Day 2 Video:
Supplies used: (most papers are from my scrap bin, yay!) red polka dot-MME Miss Caroline, green leaf print-Graphic 45, green tiny chevron-Basic Grey (I think), I die cut the tag from kraft cardstock, and punched a strip of left over woodgrain paper with a Fiskars punch. The Frond stamps are from a Fiskars stamp set, and the Happy Holidays stamp is from Martha Stewart. The red brads were from Chatterbox, and I think the tree brad was picked up from Target's $1 spot a few years ago. The Twine is from the Twinery, and I pulled a scrap of brown satin ribbon to finish off the tag.

The next card was inspired by Jen's Day 3 card and video:

Supplies used: (again, most papers are from my scrap bin!) Papers from Hobby Lobby Greetings of the Season stack, Graphic 45, and maybe GCD studios (not sure about the music notes scrap). Labe sticker-Martha Stewart, tree sticker-Jolee's, Merry Christmas sticker-Mary Engelbright, and twine from The Twinery. I cut the shaped card base and the photo corners with my Cricut, so I am entering this card into Simon Says Stamps' weekly Challenge-Dies and Punches.
