Outlines Monday Challenge 23 - Pretty in PInk

Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp is Pretty in Pink.  Visit the Outlines Rubber Stamp blog to join the challenge for a chance to win a $25 shopping spree and to see what the rest of the design team has created.


(This is much prettier in real life, it does not photograph well)  For my card, I started with this great paper from the Bo Bunny Gabrielle 6x6 paper pad.  For those of you who know me, this peachy pink is about as close as I will get to pink, lol.  I stamped E-332 Ornament Square Lg., C-432 Christmas Blessings, and B-333 Ornament Square Sm. with Shades In the Pink dye ink, heat embossing with clear embossing powder.  I cut the center panel out of the large ornament, mounting both pieces on brown card stock and then used Scotch Mounting Tape to pop up the layers.  I also popped up the sentiment.  I trimmed the smaller ornament out, created a hook from some silver wire then mounted it to the card with a brad.  The ornament swings freely on the card.  The last step was to add some light green Viva Decor Pearl pen accents.  Not your traditional Christmas colors but still a pretty card.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

I like how you did some heat embossing on this...I can see the slight dimension on it and it is just perfect. Absolutely LOVE the dangling ornament!
