Well here we are, yet another day closer to Christmas, and tonight I have a card in one of my favourite colour combos - pink and green. It is for our little granddaughter, Scarlette, in London. This will be her 3rd Christmas...where did that time fly???
I told you that you would be seeing a lot of this little bear this Christmas - he is so adorable.
I usually colour bears in soft browns, creams, or fawn, but this time I chose greys, as I also love pink and grey together. I applied Glossy Accents to the holly berries to give them some dimension.
The gorgeous pink glittered cardstock is great to work with - no matter how much it is handled, it does not shed its glitter. It comes in a vast array of yummy colours, of which I have several.
As usual, I have decorated inside the card, to co-ordinate with the front. I hate to waste anything, so I used the negative of the die cut border on the front of the card, vertically on the inside panel.
On the back of the card, I used some leftover snowflakes from an MS 'Aspen Snowflake' border punch.
