More Pink Christmas


I made this for the Magnolia-licious all year long Christmas Card Blog Hop, I had to use the pink theme again! I happen to love this shade of pink and since one of Stampin Up's Christmas paper sets has this color it makes me a happy camper :) The layout is a case, not my original design, just wanted y'all to know! The stamp is by Magnolia and I purchased her from Magnolia-licious online store. Isn't she precious?! I used one of the Spellbinder dies for the snowflakes and I usually use wax paper between the die and the paper to help remove the paper with these more intricate designs and it stuck to the pink snowflake. I thought it made a great look! So I adhered the wax paper to the snowflake die cut and it mutes the pink but at the same time it makes it sparkle and catches the light real well. You know I am all about sparkle LOL! I also used Stickles for the snow on the ground and the little spots around the tree in her hands. She is colored with water color crayons. The pink snowflake background is a Cuttlebug folder and the sentiment is on a Nestabilities die. The card is finished off with three pink rhinestone jewels on the bottom. The next stop on the blog hop is here. If you would like to see the the entire list please go to the official blog. Thanks for looking! May you create beautiful things :)

So pretty. Love the pink and the die cut you used on the words. I haven't thought about my water color crayons in forever. I may have to pull them out again.
