Pretty in Pink

This week the team at Bah Humbug are challenging us to make a 'PINKY-LICIOUS CHRISTMAS PROJECT!". It took a while to get my head round this one as I don't think I've ever made a pink christmas card but here is my card


Tilda is coloured with promarkers and a clear stardust pen, the edges are distressed with grey ink. The pink background is make using Tim Holtz snowflake stamps on white glossy card, embossed with sparkle EP and then inked with pink dye ink. I added some clear gems. The black background is black matt card cuttlebugged using the christmas words embossing folder and sprayed with a snow angel glimmer mist. The snowflakes are made of glitter card, coloured with dye ink (a bit of an experiment but it seems to have worked out ok) and cut on my cricut. They are layered up with a gem in the centre.

My 'pinkylicious card' is also for the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland: Anything goes for Christmas
Paperplay Challenge: No patterned paper
I love promarkers: Black, White + one other colour
Fab's Big Christmas Challenge: Snowflakes and Embossing

Thanks for looking,
Claire xx

  12. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous card. I have to make a pink Christmas card every year for my daughter and then when it came to the challenge I couldn't find a paper I liked. So wish I had thought of making my own patterned paper - yours looks gorgeous.
    Love your card.
