Be of Good Cheer, MM127, FFC40 & MOJO364


Greetings, Stampers! I have a fun pink and silver Christmas Card for you today. I love holiday cards in non-traditional colors!



I'm playing along with three challenges today. Kathy has a fun Christmas Bingo challenge going on at Merry Monday. I went right down the middle: patterned paper, ribbon, and punch. The colors are from the beautiful inspiration photo at Festive Friday, and the layout from Mojo Monday.


Though I couldn't capture it in my photo, all the silver elements have a bit of shine, including the trees that were stamped in Silver Encore Ink, and the card base which is Brushed Silver.


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Festival of Trees, Endless Wishes
Card Stock: Whisper White, Brushed Silver, Smoky Slate
Designer Series Paper: Fancy Foil Silver Vellum
Ink Pads: Silver Encore, Blushing Bride
Tools: Tree Punch
Accessories: Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon, Frosted Sequins, Rhinestones

Thanks for visiting!

Inky hugs!
