Pink Christmas cards

Hello my friends! I hope you are having a great day {without allergies;)}. Today I have some not-conventional Christmas cards. When I was planning my project I told myself what not to create something different, to be honest I've never made Pink Christmas cards, but sometimes you need to think outside the box :)
As you know I am a  hostess over at Stamp TV and this week I am challenging my good friends there to "Emboss + Pink"
I created very Clean & Simple cards. I love layers and embellishments (tons), so creating CAS cards is a big challenge for me.
While creating these I immediately thought of the Card Style Challenge over at Moxie Fab World "Clean & Graphic" and Christmas in July Challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room.

Here are my cards!
I did a  lot of embossing, all the images were heat embossed. For the ornament card I stamped the snowflake and die cut circles in different sizes. Then I adhered embroidery thread to create the bows.


 


 Card Recipe:
  • Card stock: Innocent Pink, Layering White, Chocolate Brown (GKD)
  • Stamps: Blessed is the season (GKD)
  • Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko), Clear Versamak, Pealescent Poppy (Tsukineko)
  • Embellishments: Pink Rhinestones (KaiserCrafts), Pearls (Michael's), Embroidery Thread (DMC), Jute twine (GKD), Red button from Holiday Collection (GKD)
  • Accessories: Label 3 Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Gold embossing powder, Embossing heat gun, Sponge daubers, Foam tape.
Hope you like it!
Have a great day!

Would you mind sharing how you got the embossing on the card without it cutting through the base card?

I hope this makes sense. You can contact me at sherrimbenson@gmail.com

Giovana,
these are the best cards. I never would have thought of pink cards either. I hope you will feel better soon.
