Pink Christmas Tree


OH my gosh I LOVE this card!!! It is a full on case of a card posted on the Hero Arts blog today (Hero Arts card here) that I just loved and then had to make it. I didn't have the pink polka dot paper so I used the Stampin' Up Christmas paper from the mini of which I happen to have a pink button and pink hemp string so rather than making the tree green, I made it pink! I used a Stampin' Up Christmas tree stamp but I really like the Hero Arts one, might have to get it. I didn't have the white lacy frame stamp (but may just have to get it also, my list is growing!) that she used on her card so I punched the edge of the pink card stock and used it instead. Actually I added a pink cardstock layer under the polka dot paper too because it just needed it :) Anyway I bought this paper set because I love the shades of pink and blue it has in it but am not super-fond of the little characters it has. I mean they are cute but they don't match most of my stamps and I don't want to buy that stamp set that goes with it. Looks like I might find uses for the paper otherwise. We will see, I might make at least one card showing the little guys. (To see what I am talking about click here and then go to page 32: Stampin' Up mini I am not a demo but if you need one I know of one you can order from of course. Hope you are inspired by the Hero Arts card and maybe mine ;)

I love your take on my card! The multi colored dots are super fun and the pink sponging around the tree looks great! :)
