Here is a pretty non-traditional Christmas card and I felt like it ended up having a bit of country feel to it, especially with the colors.
The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4." The card base is white cardstock. The brown mat is 5 1/4"x4" and the white mat is 5"x3 3/4." The hanging stars were cut with my Silhouette. I adhered them to the white mat and trimmed off the tops of the "string" once I had them in place. The scalloped scallop border is from Elegant Edges. I cut it longer than the white mat and trimmed it after I got it centered. The white layer was put through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The sentiment is from my stash. I stamped it in jumbo java ink by Tsukineko. I colored in the little stars with a dark yellow marker to match the yellow cardstock I used. I matted the sentiment twice, once on yellow and once on brown cardstocks. The mats are 1/8" larger than the previous layer and I trimmed the white cardstock to fit the sentiment.
I made this card for the following challenges:
