So, with the premise Pink Christmas, I knew I wanted to create something sparkly and pink. I broke out my snowflakes and stamped them into some embossing ink. I spread some holographic embossing powder over them to give them a real shimmer. Next, thanks to the Ombre challenge over at Just Us Girls, I used my distress inks to create shades of pink and really make the snowflakes shine.
I used the following pinks: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberries.
To create a tag for my card, I used a bunch of wintery sentiment stamps and arranged them all together in a pattern. I squished some inks on a craft mat and spritzed with water then stamped my image into the watery ink, before stamping onto the tag. It gives a really blurry watercolor feel.
I think the end result is just stunning! I never would have thought to create a pink Christmas card, so thanks Jingle Belles!!
I used this sketch from the Retro Sketches competition for my card layout:

To those of you who leave me a comment: Bless your little hearts. They make my day.
