12 Months of Christmas

My SBS sister Janet has started a challenge called 12 Months of Christmas. Each month she will give us a simple layout and we are challenged to make multiple copies (as many as we wish) of the layout as a Christmas card. This way, we won't be in a rush to make all our Christmas cards at the end of the year.

This is the sketch from Leslie for January. Below is the card I made.

The base cardstock is Mellow Moss. I used the Christmas trees from "Figures of Speech", coloured direct to rubber with Stampin' Write markers - So Saffron, Mellow Moss and Close to Cocoa. I punched out the image with a 1 inch punch and mounted it on a Square Scallop punch. The sentiment is from Occasional Greetings, gold embossed on So Saffron. This is mounted on Regal Rose and then Close to Cocoa. The ribbon is Regal Rose 5/8" Grosgrain and Mellow Moss Taffeta.
I was looking for an un-traditional colour combination as I'm really over Red and Green for Christmas all the time.
I hope you like this one.
