Merry Christmas Skates

Happy Monday!! Lisa here to share a couple of Christmas cards with you today using several Die-Versions dies.

For the focal point of my cards, I used the Whispers Skate Around die. I cut them several times for the different colors of the skates, and then applied crackle paint to the boots to give them an aged look.

Once the crackle paint dried and cracked, I added raw umber antiquing medium to highlight the cracks. The blades were cut with aluminum tape. The skates were popped up with foam tape for dimension on a Whispers Stitched Nesting Squares die.

A Whispers Snowflake Corner (not currently in stock) die was added to the corner and covered with Decoart Snow Writer paint. A Sweet Petite Snowflake die (not currently in stock) was covered in crystal ice glitter.

A Whispers Lacey Dots border die (not currently in stock) was added beneath the middle layers.
Merry Christmas and...

Seasons Greetings are from the Compliments Holiday 1 die set.
