Oh, and here is an especially pretty one from Liz Thayer's October Totally Lovin' Christmas card event that I attended. I made this design exactly like the sample Liz Thayer shared during the class, though I did decided to make my separation between layers a bit larger because I wanted the pink layers to pop a bit more. I also dropped the sentiment in the upper right corner just a bit more and decided to gold emboss it like the ornaments. (I think Liz had her's stamped with Crumb Cake ink if I remember correctly).
I know many people don't like to use non-traditional colors in their Christmas cards, and I most definitely think pink falls into that non-traditional category. But, I absolutely love this color combination. . .don't you think ornaments made from Stampin' Up's Embellished Ornaments stamp set cut out with their coordinating Delicate Ornaments Thinlit dies are simply beautiful!
Now here's something that has always puzzled me! I can't, for the life of me, figure out why they don't name their dies the same as the coordinating stamp set with which the die set is first introduced? I do realize that in the future, they often add a new stamp set named something entirely different, but for me, it would still be easier if they just named it the same as at least one of the stamp sets with which they coordinate. As I say, it's a puzzle to me, and of course, that is my personal opinon! Getting back to the pink color with the gold embossing, doesn't it makes an absolutely lovely finished card?
