Hello friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  I’ve got a winter themed card to share today that features 3 products from the December release –  Skating Pond Scene Die, Frosty Flakes Dies, and Skating Together stamp set.  These stamps and dies work so well together to give the card a complete winter look from top to bottom.

The Skating Pond Scene die makes it so easy to create a background for an A2 card.  I die cut one panel from Bristol Smooth card stock and used some Distress Oxide Inks and a blending sponge to add color to the die cut scene pieces.  I die cut another from kraft card stock for the trees.  To give the “pond” piece an over all glittery look, I heat embossed the entire piece with some Nuvo Glimmering Pearl embossing powder.

I stamped, Copic colored, and die cut two of the skaters from the Skating Together stamp set.  I stamped the skate lines onto the pond piece before embossing.  I die cut some snowflakes to add to the scene using the Frosty Flakes dies and white glitter card stock.  Lastly, I added the “Hello Winter” sentiment which is also from the Skating Together stamp set.  The little banner I stamped the sentiment on was made with a die from the new Stitched Tag Builder set.

Thanks for joining me today!  Wishing everyone a very happy New Year!! 🙂
