Pink snowflakes

Hello! I'm back with a few more Christmas cards featuring PINK. For these cards, I decided to let the patterned papers do most of the work for me.

For my snowflake cards, I trimmed a panel of BasicGrey paper down to cover two A2 (US size) card fronts. For my landscape oriented card, I used a die from Studio Calico and stamps by Winnie and Walter (The big, the bold and the merry) to create my sentiment. The die was cut from a new paper paper with subtle shimmer paper. I finished off my card with a few sequins from my stash that have a lovely gold sheen to them that works really well with the soft colours.

For my portrait oriented card, I heat embossed this beautiful and bold sentiment by Penny Black in rose gold embossing powder (SSS) and finished off again with a few sequins.

I'm linking up both cards at:

From the Jingle Belles blog:
If you've played along with us in other years, you may already know that at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ we always devote the first theme of each October to making pink holiday cards as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that for each card that gets linked up, we (Stephanie and Lauren) each donate two dollars to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
