Pretty in Pink Merry Christmas
by Anne Thompson

As a two-time survivor of breast cancer I was inspired by Trina's post yesterday to work up a pretty in pink card also in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

to make this card

  • cover the front of a white note card with one of the pretty pink poinsettia papers from the POINSETTIA GARLAND PP1024 6X6 paper pad

  • use a fingertip dauber and pink ink to lightly add pink to the raised image and around the edges of the embossed panel

  • add the large poinsettia to the center of the embossed panel using dimensional foam tape and then adhere that panel to the front of the note card
  • add one of the AUTUMN FAIRY CRYSTALS CRY101 to the poinsettia center

  • to finish the card select one of the extra thick gold foiled WHITE TABS ST1001 that says "MERRY CHRISTMAS" and add it (I used Scor-Tape on the back) near the stem base

And that's it!

I like this particular embossing folder because of the open space in the center for adding any number of holiday elements--rub ons, die cuts, stamped images--from the Memory Box 2023 Christmas Collection.  And I love that both of the embossing folders--Poinsettia Corner and Perfect Poinsettias come with coordinating dies.  I'm just getting started with holiday cards and I have so many more to make.  I think I'll be making multiples of this design.

Happy Crafting!

(Think I may need to update my photo since I've added streaks of mermaid teal to all the white this week...and my hair is now quite a bit longer...)
