Yes, you’ve read that right, this month’s blog theme is a pink Christmas! What a fun twist 🙂 You may have gotten here from Laurie Meier’s blog and I know her project was great! I have to say, I had to think for quite a while about this month’s challenge. I definitely needed to make it work with what I had on hand because I didn’t want to order something just for the blog challenge. I have a fair amount of current holiday stamps, it was just the issue of what would look good in pink!
I finally made my decision, and it was sort of based on looking at my messy desk and seeing what random pieces I had lying around that needed to be used, lol! I always seem to have an odd assortment of pieces from previous projects that I just can’t throw away. Is there anyone else like me?? I had a couple of the Polar bears from the Beary Cute stamp set so that’s what got me started. I also had a layer of Bubble Bath card stock that had been embossed using the Snowflake Sky embossing folder, it was a leftover from some previous card swap that I had participated in. So that started me on my journey, I just needed to pull in a few more elements to finish off the card. I also thought it would be good to feature the Beary Cute set because it is set to retire at the end of the current Mini Catalog. But it may retire sooner since the Last Chance list has been published, and any items on this list are while supplies last. If this has been on your list, don’t wait to order or you might be disappointed to find it gone.
This is the finished result 🙂
I just stamped a couple of trees, added some ribbon and a sentiment and I was done! I will admit that I normally wouldn’t do this much fussy cutting for one card, but with the leftover bears already done, I really just needed to fussy-cut the trees. I’m definitely going to use this card to send to my granddaughter in England, who absolutely LOVES pink! This is a photo of her from last Christmas, which we spent with her in England. The majority of her gifts were pink, lol!
Here’s the inside of the card and the matching envelope, because a card just isn’t complete without a matching envelope!
I also created a PDF tutorial if you’d like to replicate this card. Just click HERE to download it. All the supplies used will be on the PDF, but you can also see them at the end of this blog.
Now, please continue through the hop. Kelly Taranto is up next, check out her Pink Christmas project!
