I wasn't able to post my latest Pink Petticoat creation with being away over Christmas, so I'd like to share it with you all now.
Here are the cards I created for the "Pink Christmas" theme...
No matter how much I love pink, it is one of those colours that can be very over powering if used too much of at one time. So, I thought the best way to use it was to use pink as an accent colour. Teamed with the beige creates a very subtle, elegant look.
I created the topper using about 10 layers of packing paper scalloped circles. Then topped it off with a circle of Pink Petticoat "Twas the Night before Christmas" paper before buttoning the whole lot together with a chunky "Papertrey Ink" button and white organza.
I was so pleased with the first card, I decided to make a seccond. I used all the same materials, changing only a few elements.
The Swirls I stamped twice, first with a lighter ink, followed by a darker ink ever so slightly off from the first print. This creates a nice shaddow look.
