Advent Calendar Tag & Coordinating Card, Day 4

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 4's tag, I used the PTI's Shaker Shapes: Star dies with
some Simple Stories Holly Jolly patterned paper.

I diecut the stitched star die from some stamper's select white cardstock
and the 4 from some smokey shadow cardstock using PTI's Book Print Number dies.
I diecut the snowflake from some music note paper using the largest snowflake from
Wplus9's Snowflake Trio Dies and stitched a button over top.

For my coordinating card, I used the same patterned paper & Shaker Shapes die.

For the base of my card, I used some Bazzill Basics Guacamole cardstock, which I also used for the stitched star diecut.
I diecut the banner using some Bazzill Basics Taffy and the banner die from PTI's
MIM Tinsel & Tags kit, on which I stamped using the same banner (in soft stone) 
and the sentiment (also from the Tinsel & Tags stamp set.)
I ran the Bazzill Basics Marshmallow cardstock through my diecutting machine 
with my We R Memory Keepers wood grain embossing folder.
A few Pretty Pink Posh wooden stars finish it off.

Thanks for looking!
