Pink Christmas



I know pink is not a traditional Christmas color, but I made this one in pink just to be different :) I pulled out a very old CTMH snowflake stamp set, and stamped the images with Versamark ink, then heat-embossed with white ep. I stamped the PTI sentiment in Versafine black and heat-embossed that with clear ep, then pulled out the distress inks and sponges. The top portion was done with Spun Sugar, while the lower portion was done with Picked Raspberry. I pulled out a big honkin' clear oval gemstone and placed it right in the center of the biggest snowflake. It looks blue in the photo, but it's clear and really looks pretty. I'm entering this into the following challenges:

March Rudolph Days - anything goes / Christmas

Jingle Belles - Christmas / Bling or sparkle

CHNC 326 - anything goes / Christmas


Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a fantastic weekend!

Sometimes non traditional is a wonderful thing as is your beautiful card, Carol! I have always enjoyed making pink Christmas cards! I love those beautifully embossed snowflakes and that pop of sparkle from the rhinestone! Great job....I bet you have your Christmas cards almost completed for the year!!! TFS and I hope you had a chance to get out and enjoy the warmer weather today?!!

Hey these days anything goes and I think the pink is a very nice change. Very sweet card and will really bring a wonderful feeling of love during the holiday season. Sorry I haven't been visiting but I just checked out your two previous posts and both cards are just gorgeous. Have a good night.

Love it!! I like Pink Christmas cards, even made a Pink and Blue combo before.....with snowflakes too. Of course with the right sentiment they can be used after Christmas as well.

Your embossed snowflakes look wonderful against your pink inky background.
Love the non traditional colours you chose and the inky play of the shading.

Thank you for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

Love all those snowflakes! I think everyone should make one pink Christmas card each year. It's a nice color and unexpected for Christmas, but it works.
