I'm Dreaming of a Pink and White Christmas

Good morning all!

It’s a little early to talk Christmas, but I have just been in the mood to start my Christmas cards early. It’s never too early because there never seems to be enough time to get them all done.

I created this card watching the season premier of Greys Anatomy last night. Did you watch it? It was very good, but was on way too late. I have to get up very early so I’m dragging today. My sitter had a bad cold yesterday and today my little one has it. No fun!

When I bought this set called “Snow Swirled” from Stampin’ Up! (pg 32, #111690), the delicate look of it made me think “pink”! I alternate the theme of my Christmas tree every year between Victorian and multi-color. I may do the Victorian tree this year which also inspired my card creation last night.

The first thing I did was emboss a Whisper White card with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. Then I stamped and embossed the tree from the Snow Swirled set onto Pretty in Pink cardstock. I layered the embossed tree on Whisper White and then Pretty in Pink behind that. I stamped “Season’s Greetings”, also included in the Snow Swirled set, in Whisper White Craft Ink on the pink cardstock and cut out with my Nestabilities the oval shape. I layered that piece on a slightly larger embossed oval in Whisper White to raise up the saying a little. To finish it off, some shiny pink ribbon!

I also have traditionally created a Victorian Christmas tree, so this card is very beautiful to me, too. Gorgeous card. Will this be in your card kit?

Tiffany - this is just beautiful. I hope you don't mind, but I may CASE you on this one.

The pink would be perfect for me to create a set of cards for my Mom to send out.

LOVING this card. Thanks for the inspiration!
