Every Wednesday at 12:00 PM CST, I share a new project tutorial over on my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page. Please join me and if you can’t make it Live, you can always watch the replay. Also, I’d like to invite you to join my Stampin’ Anne Facebook Group for giveaways and exclusive projects. Everyone is welcome!
I may have mentioned that I’m a fan of non-traditional colors for Christmas cards, so for today’s projects, it was all about a PINK Christmas! To start out, I made this fun little tag that was one of the projects from my team meeting this month. This would work as a gift tag or even a little ornament for a Christmas tree. These stars are not specifically for holiday cards either. With just a switch of a sentiment and this could be a fun birthday tag, too. The tag comes together easily using the Layering Circles Dies and the So Many Stars Bundle.
Next up, I created a coordinating card. I used the same layer of stars that I used on the tag, and added a soft watercolor wash background behind the image to make it pop. I did the watercolor wash on Shimmery White Cardstock with an Aqua Painter, so the background also has a fun layer of sparkle. There are some tips in the video along with a tip using the Silver Metallic Thread that I have found makes it a little easier to use on projects.
There is something about that Champagne Foil Paper paired with the pink, that just makes me smile. Again, this would also make a fun birthday or congratulations card with a switch of the sentiment.
- Flirty Flamingo Card Base - 5-1/2” x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4”

Finally, a peek inside the card with a beautiful sentiment stamped in Crumb Cake ink and some stars stamped in Bushing Bride ink.
