Unity Stamps has the cutest button card stamp so I thought it would be fun to use it on one of the 12 tags.
Stamp the Assorted Styles stamp with brown Memento ink on parchment looking paper.
Use a small holly berry stamp with distress markers.
Stamp holly berry at the top of the button card just under the title.

From the Christmas Memories Stamp set , stamp the ornament in dark green distress ink onto glossy paper.
Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
With a blending tool and red distress ink, color over the entire ornament tinting all the white areas red.

Stamp a pine bough in light and dark distress inks across the top of the tag, down the right side of the tag,
and at the left corner of the tag. I used a brown distress marker on the stamp to accent the branch of the bough after I inked the stamp.
Dab parts of the pine bough with Glue N Seal and sprinkle Rock Candy Distress Dry Stickles over the areas. Tap off excess, let dry.
At the bottom right corner of the tag stamp a small title, like “Greetings”

Pick out two red and two dark green buttons for the button card and with a needle and thread sew the buttons directly onto the button card. (you could also glue the buttons down.)
Distress with a blending tool the edges of the tag with a brown distress ink.

Knot a ribbon and trim, adhere to the top of the ornament.
Adhere the button card to the top left side of the tag and the ornament to the lower right side of the tag.
Add twine and tinsel to the top of the tag.
