Think Pink Cricut Blog challenge

Here is my submission for the Think Pink challenge. I've been thinking about what to do for Christmas cards, so when I saw this challenge I immediately thought of Christmas. Although I usually don't think of pink and Christmas going together I really like the way this came out.

I used the Joys of the Season and Lacy Labels cartridges. I cut the tree out at 4" and also used the blackout feature. Although it looks kind of red in the photo, I used a dark pink card stock for the blackout. I ran the top swirly layer of the tree through my Xyron machine in order to adhere it to the blackout layer. Instead of cleaning up the extra adhesive, I added clear MS glitter to give it a little sparkle. I then used flower shaped rhinestones for ornaments. The presents were cut out at 1" and I outlined the ribbon with liquid pearls.

The mats were from Lacy Labels. There were extremely white, so I just used some pink chalk and shaded it a bit to soften the look. All of the paper that I used were scraps so I have no idea who made what.

The sentiment was done on the computer, then placed on the mat exactly where I knew the mat would cut! I also chalked up that mat, just not quite as much.
