Non-traditional Christmas Card

The latest challenge from my SBS sisters is to make a Christmas card using non-traditional Christmas colours! No reds and greens!! and Kristina's current challenge is to use reds or pinks.



Ahh (light bulb switching on here!) my Christmas card I sent to my Aussie friends last year - inspired by my very talented upline Jacque Pedersen. Here it is in it's magnificent PINKNESS!

Stampin Up and Lovely As A tree
Stamp set/s: Lovely As A Tree, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, All Year Cheer I (retired)
Ink: Regal Rose, Versamark
Cardstock: Whisper white & Regal Rose
Other: White embossing powder & glitter mix, word window punch, rose grosgrain ribbon

The tree has just been stamped off 3 or 4x to create this effect.

PS I love this done in night of navy too - the "snow" looks even more spectacular then!

Hey Karen, I should have to leave credit to you on my page for all of the inspiration you have given me. Your image (so beautiful), is what I had looked at and what made me decide to go with pink!

This is an amazing card. I tried to post a comment, when you posted the card on the blog, but I was getting an error message.
