Pink Christmas Ornament


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge is having a "think pink" challenge this week, so I made a pink Christmas card. I die cut the Heartfelt Creations ornaments with blushing bride and silver mirror cardstock, popping the smaller ornament on top of the larger one, and adding silver gems and silver cording. The kraft background was embossed with a softly fallen ef and sponged with SSS white ink to look like snow. I added a "Be Merry" sentiment and a color-coordinating strip of dsp on the left side, along with a strip of embossed metal trim to match the silver on the ornament.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a fantastic Monday!

What a pretty card, Carol! Love your pink ornament and then a smaller silver foil one on top! The embossed background gives a snowy winter feel to the card! This color combo is very pretty together too! TFS and hope you have a wonderful day! :)

Hi Carol, what a lovely card. The bauble looks lovely with the ornamentation and what a good idea to add the embossed strip down the side. Barbxx
