25 Days of Christmas - Rustic Star

Today's Christmas card is on the rustic side.

The card is 5 1/2"x4 1/4."  I used shimmery green card stock for the card base.  I cut a foiled red mat at 5 1/4"x4," and a red and green plaid card stock at  5 1/8"x3 7/8."  I put four red brads in each corner, then adhered the mats to the card base with foam tape.

The stars are from "George and Basic Shapes."  The wood patterned star is 3 1/4."  The red star is also 3 1/4" but I used the shadow feature.  The green star is 3 1/2" and also uses the shadow feature.  I used the Spellbinders "Ribbon Banners" die to cut the banner.  I then used a Fiskars stamp for the sentiment.  The star in the middle of the sentiment is from the "Merry Christmas" stamp set by My Craft Spot.  I adhered the banner to the card, putting some foam tape in the middle for some dimension.

I made this for the following challenges:
365 Cards: "Day 357" - stars
Christmas Card Challenges: make it masculine
