Flamingo Tree - Stampin' Up! Trees for Sale

   I've got a super simple but super cute Christmas card today! I used the Perfectly CAS challenge to "Think Pink" and since I'm really trying to make headway with my Christmas cards I thought a pink inspired Christmas card would be perfect.

  I kept this clean and simple card mostly white with just a few pops of Flirty Flamingo. Using a limited color palette can also help keep a card clean and simple.  I started with a Basic White thick card base topped with another layer of Basic White embossed with the Whimsical Woodland embossing folder.  The retired Flirty Flamingo ribbon is wrapped around that layer and anchored with a fork bow.

  The tree is stamped in Flirty Flamingo and cut out along with a white glimmer paper overlay. I popped the tree on dimensionals on a Stylish Shapes square which is also popped on dimensionals on the card front.

  The sentiment is in the Inspired Thoughts set and is stamped and trimmed down and adhered under the square separated with some small rhinestones.

  I thought this design would look great in a variety of colors; traditional as well as non-traditional.  All the white and open space really lets the single color stand out.  For those that do craft fairs it would be fun to make a rainbow set of tree cards to sell!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
