Hello friends! Welcome back to my blog! It's that time of the year again where those fun ladies over at the Jingle Belles blog, Stef and Lauren, host a very special challenge! Of course, I mean the PINK challenge to raise money for breast cancer research! For every card made for this challenge, each of these wonderful ladies will donate $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Isn't that wonderful? I wanted to make more cards for the challenge, but I ran out of time. I did manage to make 3 though:
The first 2 are mini slimlines made with the Jolly Christmas Tree die from Lawn Fawn. The first one was cut from pastel pink glitter cardstock, and I inlaid the ornament shapes into it from the holographic card stock I used for the tree in card #2. I thought it would be cute to add the tree topper as well, so I glued that on top of the pink layer. The Tim Holtz sentiment was also cut from the pink glitter cardstock, as well as 3 layers of 110lb white cardstock that are underneath the pink. The tree itself I popped up on foam tape. The blue ink blended card front was done using Prize Ribbon oxide ink.
Card #2 has a background blended with Kitsch Flamingo oxide ink, and some Picked Raspberry at the bottom for a deeper pink. The tree and the sentiment are all done the same; 2 layers of 110lb white underneath the holographic cardstock.
For card #3, I decided to go a completely different route, and pulled out the Poinsettia stencil from Honey Bee Stamps. I used Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo oxides for my "petals", and the "leaves" were blended with Twisted Citron and either Lucky Clover or Evergreen Bough...I don't remember which one now! I just lightly went over the circle centers so I could see to cover them with gold Stickles. All my layers were die cut using Spellbinders card creator dies. I created the sentiment with Lawn Fawn's Oliver's Stitched ABCs, and the same shiny gold cardstock as the layer beneath the main panel. I added 4 layers of 110lb white cardstock underneath the letters for lots of dimension! All of these cards look so much better IRL than in these photos! 😕
