Have a festive Christmas

Hi Bloggers.

A pink Christmas card today.

For the background, I simply inked through the Holly Wreath Mask with Spun Sugar Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask around to cover the whole area, inking through the holly parts only.

The baubles are from the Justrite Vintage Christmas Ornaments Rubber Stamp Set. For the larger one, I first stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Festive Poinsettia Clear Stamp Set, using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer True White Embossing Powder. I then stamped the bauble around it, added the powder and heat set the lot. I cut the baubles out using Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments 2013. I added some pink Bakers Twine from the Pastel Set to each.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of White Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Pink Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Don't forget Sue is on the Toolshed on Create & Craft today 12noon till 2pm.

Thanks for stopping by.
