Pink Winter Wonderland

Second post of the day...so much to share. :)

I love using unconventional colors for traditional occasions. Since Christmas has come and gone, yet I'm still in the spirit, I thought I would make "winter" cards. I was inspired by the current challenge happening over at Cupcake Inspirations this week. 


I liked the idea of combining the snowflakes with the trees. And, of course, I LOVE the shades of pink. I came up with this card. 


I found another package-free stamp set that had a great assortment of snowflakes; three different snowflake designs, each with three sizes. I'm pretty sure that the set is Martha Stewart but again, no packaging. Live and learn, I guess. I used Stampin' Up's Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, and Melon Mambo inks for the snowflakes. I used a Sizzix die to cut my tree and cut a shadow out of Pretty in Pink cardstock as well. The white panel is embossed with my favorite snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. The card base is Melon Mambo, and I added Diamond Stickles for that "something special". The sun is a bit bright in the picture; the Stickles are more subtle in person. Rounded the right-side corner and called it done.

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
