Red and Green Christmas

Hi and welcome to another Merry Monday challenge.  This week, Debbie is our hostess and she wants to see light green, dark green and red on our Christmas cards.


For my card, I pulled out the cute Cozy Christmas set and matching dies.  I used the sketch at Fab Friday.


I stamped and colored the Christmas tree and Santa using Copics.  I didn't color Santa's face because I was sticking to the challenge colors, but I guess living in the North Pole wouldn't give him much chance to catch any sun, so all's good :)

The colored panel was layered onto a Wild Wasabi panel with rounded corner.  The sentiment was stamped onto some vellum and layered on top of a black banner.  To finish off the card, I tied two tiny tingle bells together with some striped baker's twine.

Thanks for visiting.  The rest of the design team have some fabulous cards using these colors so be sure to check them out.


Products used:

Stamps:  Cozy Christmas (Mama Elephant)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Archival Black
Cardstock:  White, black, vellum, X-Press It, Wild Wasabi
Accessories:  Cozy Christmas dies, jingle bells, baker's twine, Copics

Cheers
Karren
