Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Week


Hello crafty friends! Today I’m very excited to be participating in the Pretty Pink Posh Holiday Week! I just love creating with Pretty Pink Posh products, I really appreciate the cute illustrations and how wonderfully the stamp sets coordinate with previously released products. The cute Christmas Boxcard that I’m sharing today has a blend of Holiday sets from present to past. 

I built this boxcard with mint colored cardstock and some patterned papers that have red, pink, green, and mint. For the background panel, I inkblended some pretty pink shades and splattered with water and white ink. Then I used the Layered Snowflake stencils  to create a pink and white blizzard which includes some  raised embossed snowflakes. 

I like to focus my coloring, to match with my papers, so that it all feels themed. I stamped many images from Happy Santa and Reindeer Friends. After coloring the images and using the coordinating die cuts to perfectly cut my images, I added small white dot highlights. I adhered my images throughout the layers of my boxcard making sure that none were completely hidden. Then I heat embossed some snowflakes on vellum and tucked them into the scene on skinny acetate strips so they look like actual snowfall. 

To finish off the boxcard, I used gold embossing powder for the scripty “Joy” sentiment from the new Pine Wreath stamp set (I love that it has a coordinating die!) and mounted it onto a white banner that reads “to the world” from an older Joy stamp set. I think the bright red cardstock really packs a punch for the front. 

Finally, I stamped my sentiment onto the back and added a few little details and one more reindeer to make this beautiful from all angles. I hope that you enjoy this festive and bright card, make sure that you visit the the PPP shop to see the incredible products and take advantage of all of the holiday deals!
