Joyously Pink

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   I have to say, I kinda like Christmas cards in non-traditional colors. I try to add some blues into the mix of cards I make for the season. But I never think of this color palette. We made this card at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends Christmas gathering and it's based on a design by the fabulous Mary Fish. Take a look!

We started by stamping the plaid tree from the "Perfectly Plaid" stamp set in Basic Gray Ink onto Whisper White Card Stock. We punched it out with the matching Pine Tree Punch.

Next, we embossed a 3-3/4" by 5" piece of Basic Gray Card Stock with the Subtle Embossing Folder and adhered it to a 4" by 5-1/4" Lovely Lipstick Card Stock mat. We adhered that to a Thick Whisper White Card Stock Card Base, cut lengthwise. We adhered a 2-1/2" by 3-1/2" Lovely Lipstick piece of 2018-2020 In Color 6" by 6" Designer Series Paper to the card.

We cut a Stitched Nested Label from Whisper White Card Stock and stamped the sentiment from the "Itty Bitty Christmas" set in Basic Gray Ink. We punched Vellum Card Stock leaves with the Sprig Punch and adhered them to the back of the stitched label. We adhered the label to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish the card, we adhered the tree to the label with Stampin' Dimensionals. Then we threaded some Whisper White Baker's Twine through a 2018-2020 In Color Lovely Lipstick Button, tied it in a knot, trimmed the ends, and adhered the button to the tree with a couple of Mini Glue Dots.

I just love this color combination, don't you?!
