To make things a little easier for you (and for myself), I decided to group my last three pink Christmas cards together in a single post. After all, each of these card inspired the next one.
While browsing the web, I spotted a pink card with translucent embossing paste over an ink-blended background. I copied that idea, using one of my non-Christmassy stencils by Stamperia. After my panel was dry and die cut using my stitched rectangle die (SSS), I added some gold splatters (that don't really show up in the picture but add a nice sparkle IRL). To finish off, I simply added 2 stacked snowflakes (SSS) and a previously stamped and die cut sentiment (SSS Christmas word mix).
I thought I could create a similar look using some patterned paper that I had already cut to size. I did blend some coral pink ink around the edges and behind the snowflake. I added Nuvo drops to the ends of the snowflake to match the yellowish elements of the PP.
For my final card, I used another sheet of the PP to create my hanging stockings. I had already stamped a die cut a bunch of these stocking images last year. They were originally designed as cookies (Gingerbread Fun, Paper Discovery), but I think I can use them any way I like. I did some quick colouring using my Copics. I created a faux wood plank by scoring a strip of kraft cardstock and swiping it with a grey-brown ink. The sentiment (from an older stamp set by Technique Tuesday) was heat-embossed in gold. For a fun touch, I decided to hang the stockings using some brads from my stash, so that they can move.
