Pink Christmas Hummingbird House
by Trina Pham

IMG_3067


Hello everyone.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and in support, I created a monochromatic pink Christmas card using several new products from the current 2023 Christmas release.
 
The Woodgrain Bird House, Layered Hummingbird and Classic Pine Needle Sprigs were all die cut out from white paper.  Colored them with Picked Raspberry and Black Soot distress inks (DI) using various blending brushes.  The snowy layer on the roof was die cut a second time from pink Delicate Pastel glitter paper for some sparkle.

After seeing a post recently on a crafty friend’s blog, the Torn Paper Mask technique was used to create the cloud background.  This was done by ink blending Spun Sugar DI over the edges of torn printer paper… so no need for a cloud edge stencil! 🤗

The cloud background was then die cut down with the third largest A2 Rectangle Frames die.  Assembled the card onto an A2 size white woodgrain panel and added falling snow with a white gel pen (even on the die cut pieces because snow doesn’t avoid them). 😉  A Merry Christmas Foil Greetings Black Tab finished it off.

A quick note…  I will be linking this card to the Pink Christmas challenge at Jingle Belles where $4 per card entered will be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Fun creating a pink (or predominantly pink) Christmas card while helping fundraise for the Cure?… it’s a win-win!  That does it from me.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful weekend.

This is an awesome hummingbird and birdhouse! Love all the pink!

Beautiful card for Breast Cancer month, Trina! And a wonderful non-traditional coloured Christmas card!

So much texture on this sweet bird house card with the lovely pink clouds, the woodgrain and snow splatter!
