Pink Christmas

I've been seeing some beautiful pink Christmas cards, so I wanted to try a few of my own. 


This one is the pinker of the 2, using my new Starry Night cling stamp and worn lipstick distress ink for the background.  It is overstamped lightly in Brilliance pearlescent beige ink with the music background, glitter added to the trees and some stars, then framed in brown and centered on a card already white embossed with snowflakes.

Supplies: white, brown, pink cardstock, CG224 Starry Night, CG222 Music Background, CG100 Snowflake Circle, CL343 Holiday Sayings, worn lipstick distress ink, brilliance pearlescent beige, sepia archival, and versamark inks, white embossing powder, glue pen and glitter, punched snowflakes, button, hemp cord


This one started with an October Afternoon paper called Sing the Carols.  The little Penny Black caroler was stamped and colored in similar colors, distressed lightly on the edges with tattered rose, and framed in brown.  The sentiment was pink embossed on the same brown cardstock, tucking it along the side.  I finished with this pretty peachy satin ribbon topped with a punched snowflake.  A second snowflake was first sponged with tattered rose before adding it to the corner.

Supplies: white and brown cardstock, Penny Black 4097J Christmas Note, Hero Arts CL343 Holiday Sayings, tattered rose distress, versafine onyx black and versamark inks, pink embossing powder, satin ribbon, punched snowflakes

Love the bits of browns mixed in to both cards! The second card is so darn cute! Love your coloring, distressing and gorgeous satin bow!

  2. Hi Lin, these cards are gorgeous. I love the non-traditional Christmas colors. I love how the cut out snow flakes match the snow flakes on your background paper. You are an inspiration to me and thanks for your kind comments that you leave on my blog and on my photostream. God bless.
