PINK - Take #2 on FFC#13

Good morning friends.  Hope you all had a great weekend!  Mine was very wet and quiet, so you know what that means...yep, I had time to play in my craft room again! :0)  And I hope you're not sick of "pink" Christmas cards yet, because I am loving them and getting all kinds of great ideas over at the Festive Friday blog! 

 
These colors together just scream elegance to me and I had so much fun putting another card together with the pink, white, & silver.  Take a look at card number 2:


I started with a 5 x 5 white card base and added a layer of pink and white dotted BoBunny cardstock.  The backside of the dotted cardstock was a plain pink, and I used a smaller piece to emboss with silver using SU!'s "Script" background stamp.  I matted this layer with a layer of white cardstock and added a sheer white ribbon before securing this layer down.  I used a PTI die for the Christmas tree and just used scraps from my stash, and then pop dotted it to the silver embossed layer.  I used a Cheery Lynne die for the snowflake, added glitter around the edges (enlarge picture and you'll be better able to see the glitter), and then positioned it on the card.  I added a vellum banner at the top and embossed in silver the "Merry Christmas" (PTI's "Christmas Blessings" stamp set).  If you look closely, you can see I did a little faux stitching on the left edge of the banner.  I also added silver stars (POW Glitter Paper) to the top of the Christmas tree and the bow.  I just love how this card turned out and may have to make a few more to send to those "someone special" friends on my list! :0)

Have a wonderful Monday friends and thanks for stopping by to share a part of your day with me...I love it when you do! :0)

  9. Sometimes a card just clicks, and this is one of those. Pink and white perfection! I almost didn't recognize the PTI tree die, so different in pink and white. And that snowflake, divine! But the best is the card whole. Sweet!
