I’m usually super traditional when it comes to Christmas – which means lots of bright Christmas reds and greens – so I wasn’t sure about making a pink Christmas card. What a great challenge though! This is my 3rd installment for the SCS color challenge: Lucky Primrose Pirouettes with the add-on challenge of making a pink Christmas card. So the official colors this week were Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, and Primrose Petals. I love these colors!
I used a LOT of Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder on this card, which is soooo impossible to photograph. Ugh! Anyway, I embossed Whisper White card stock with the Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine and the Holiday Frame Embossing Folder. Then, using a brayer, I lightly rolled VersaMark ink and Pink Pirouette ink over the raised panel, after which I dusted it with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and heat embossed.
I trimmed around the embossed panel with my Paper Snips and layered it on Pink Pirouette card stock. The card base measures 4″ x 5-1/2″ for an even border on all edges.
The ornament was stamped with Primrose Petals and embossed with……that’s right!…Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder!! Love that stuff! The holly was inked with Lucky Limeade and then I tapped the brush tip of the Primrose Petals marker on the berries before stamping. These pieces were adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots. I tied a Pirouette Pink Satin Ribbon bow and attached it with Glue Dots including adding a couple under the tails to give it shape.
And finally, I added a few rhinestones. You can never go wrong with glitter and rhinestones!
So it turns out, I like a pink Christmas card!
Enjoy!
