I was browsing the challenge sites that I usually frequent and found a reference to a new one (to me) – In The Pink, who are running a Christmas challenge this month. I decided that this was the perfect challenge for me to get out Strawberry Slush again; I’ve been neglecting this colour after making the pink cat card for my dentist a few months ago. I struggled with that card and ended up rather “pinked out” by the end of it – not a state that I knew was possible! So here’s my entry:
As I mentioned, I used strawberry slush for the card. I cut a piece of card 1/4 inch smaller than the base and scored, using the Stampin’ Scorer, a quarter inch from the edge all the way around. I liked it best with the raised edge being the front of the card. I then used the Stampin’ Up! Endless Wishes stamp set to emboss the greeting in white embossing powder. Next I took the blushing bride embossing powder and heat embossed the 3 large snowflakes (they are actually the medium sized snowflake from the set) and then filled in with the smaller snowflake with more embossing, this time in white. After that is was a simple matter of popping up the mat with stampin’ dimensionals and dry embossing the envelope with the lucky stars embossing folder. I think I’m going to try this design in a few other colours too. But first, I should probably write more of my Christmas cards and get them mailed!
