Advent Calendar Tags & Coordinating Card, Day 9

I was inspired to create a new Advent Calendar this year.
I've made 24 numbered tags that I'm displaying on an old window that
will hang on my kitchen wall.

For each tag, I also have a card to share that I made, inspired by the tag.
(You can see my previous tags & cards here.)

For Day 9's tag, I used my Shaker Shapes: Tree dies with
a sheet from the PTI's Tinsel & Tags kit dies & patterned paper.

I diecut the holly using dies from the MIM Tinsel & Tags kit.
The "9" was diecut using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
A button and twine finishes it off.

For my card, I used the same patterned paper as my background,
as well as stamps & dies from the MIM Tinsel & Tags kit.

I stamped my sentiment using Mama Elephant's Season's Greetings stamp set
and added a little bit of twine.

Thanks for looking!
