A Pink Christmas Card


Happy Monday, peeps!  What a lazy day I am having!  I guess the two hours that I couldn't sleep last night caught up with me!  I made one little Christmas card today and the mojo just wasn't there..but I had already invested time in it, so here it goes!  It fulfills three challenges:  Christmas Kickstart (to use a woodland creature); Jingle Belles (to use pink), and CAS Christmas Card challenge (to create a winter scene). 
        

I had just received the Nature's Beauty set with that cute little rabbit, so I did a very simple card, masking the trees from Winter Woods and Rooted in Nature, to create my little scene.  I sponge-brayered my sunset sky in Blushing Bride (another technique I need practice on!), embossed it with Softly Falling, then added a sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas:


Something that I never remember, is that when you run your cardstock through an embossing folder like this, it gets very flimsy, so it is a good idea to use SU's Thick White cardstock....which I didn't do, of course!  It just gives your card some extra body.  NEXT time!  Anyway, the trees as well as my little bun-bun were stamped in Gray Granite and I just watercolored a little pink shadow beneath him:


The sentiment was diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die, and after I sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for "snow", I adhered it with a dimensional:


And here's the inside:


So it was a bit of a trial and error; I might do it again with a separate layer for the snow...we'll see! Thanks for popping in today! 

We had a Harvest Party at church on Saturday evening; the kids weren't there but there was still a lot going on:

Apple cider fresh from the press:


Roasted hot dogs and (burnt) marshmallows:


Pumpkin decorating:


And a sunset hayride:


with a gorgeous sky:


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I spotted this set in the seasonal catty and it jumped out at me! I love that little rabbit and he looks very happy in his pink snowy world. Thanks for that embossing tip!

I LOVE this card because I love bunnies and pink. Great creation. We are going to an apple orchard today for a wine and hard cider tasting. I don't like hard cider but I will taste their apple wine and maybe the peach. I'm loving the cool weather and seeing so many cardinals.
