Monochromatic Christmas Card

I made this card for the Lawnscaping challenge going on right now, monochromatic.

I wanted to use more of my scratch and sniff embossed gingerbread cookies, so I decided to make my card with shades of brown.

I punched snowflakes out of a lighter piece of brown cardstock and a border out of a metallic brown/bronze cardstock, then started assembling things.

The cookies were fussy cut a while back and applied with pop dots.  The tray was cut on a silhouette and lined with a white gel pen.  I used a bit of coloured gel pen on the cookies themselves.

I used the sentiment from the Sweet Christmas set, as well as the mini snowflake, which I stamped in the open areas.  I probably should have centered the sentiment, but I didn't think of that in time.

Crafting companies are so amazing.  Lawn Fawn recently had a contest for their newest collection, stamps and dies.  And, along with several other lucky people, I won!  This is the prize they sent me, the complete Into the Woods collection.  And it looks awesome. :D

Congrats on your new play-things. I'm not normally a 'brown' type of person... exception is chocolate but the way you did that card was beautiful with the brown. Great creativity!
