Reason for the Season in Pink!

This was one of the cards we did in a Holiday Catalog class a couple months ago that I thought I’d share now!  Today I need to spend in my studio and get some things done for the next few weeks!  lol!  I love the soft colors and silvery shimmer on this one!


Reason for the Season

Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Thick Whisper White.
  • On the 3-3/4 x 5 layer of Pink Pirouette, the Merry Christmas greeting from Reason for the Season was stamped with Tuxedo Black Ink in the lower right corner.
  • A 1 x 5 strip of the silvery DSP in the Neutrals Pack was adhered across the center.
  • The poinsettia flower outline was stamped twice with Smoky Slate on Whisper White , then the insides with Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz colors.  The inside of the second Pink Pirouette one was cut out and added over the base one with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • In the center, a trio of small Pearls were placed.
  • Some Silver Thread was wrapped around my finger in loops, then added to the back of the Poinsettia with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered to the front.  It adds just the right amount of sparkle!

This was one of the most popular cards in the class.  I love the non-traditional colors, but would be beautiful in red and green, too!
