Christmas Card Club - Pink and White Christmas

It was Karen's turn to chose the theme for Christmas Card Club this fortnight. She chose the fun theme of a Pink and White Christmas card.  I do not have a supply of pink Christmas DP so chose to use three shades of pink card stock instead. The main pale pink card is pearlized card...just for a bit of extra shimmer.



I decided to make a card that featured some of my favourite dies. There are two sizes of Impression Obsession snowflakes on this card and love both sets. The Merry Christmas is Couture Creations Magical Christmas, and I gave all the die cuts a liberal coat of my other favourite supply...Stardust Stickles! I should buy shares in that company as I use it so much!

A few dollar store pink diamond bling scattered across my snowflake centres, and I was done.

Best of all this card is slim enough to fit through the regular post. Bonus!!!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Christmas Card Club - Pink Christmas
2. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets
