Pink & Blue Christmas

Hi everyone, I hope that your week has started off fabulous and that you are all well!!!


I cannot believe that within a months time Christmas will be over ! Yes we are definitely on the down hill count down now.


So how are you going with your Christmas cards?  Need some inspirations?  How about visiting us at Holly Jolly for our new challenge which is to use Pink and Blue on your Christmas Project.


I was not sure how to complete my card but I wanted to use the Come to Bethlehem stamp set eventually I decided to create a little pink light in a blue background to create a Summer sunset.  You know the saying “Pink sky at Night sailors delight, Pink sky in Morning sailors warning”.


So I sponged a piece of Whisper White cardstock with Baja Breeze and then added a little Primerose Petals ink.  I stamped the Three Wise Men in Midnight Muse and embossed it with clear embossing powder.


The image was cut out using the Labels Collection Framelits and I also cut out a piece of the Snow Festival DSP in a large die from the Labels Collection to create a frame for the image.


The base card stock is Primerose Petal and I added a scrap of Whisper White down one side which has been embossed using the Fancy Fan Folder.  Plus there is one Rhinestone for some bling.


Here is my card…





Stamp set: Come to Bethlehem

Card: Primerose Petal, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse

Accessories:  Labels Collection Framelits, Fancy Fan Folder, Snow Festival DSP, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive

I am cute happy with this card and I am really happy that I have used this stamp set.
