Just One More Skating Card

Yes, I know that this stamp set is GONE, but I just love those skaters from Winter Post and I MISS them already!

This is a Christmas Card that I created for a custom client in December and I'd forgotten to post it here for you to see, so since I'm busy working on Valentine's stuff, I thought you'd like to see it now. Besides, it's a very WINTRY card, don'tcha think?

I started with a card base of Chocolate Chip and layered it with Very Vanilla edged in Chocolate Chip ink with the Stamping Sponge. The words were stamped with Bashful Blue ink (stamped off once first) at the top and bottom to give it that vintage feel.

I then used my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle Die to cut the large Bashful Blue circle. The Scallop Circle #2 Die was used for the Very Vanilla circle. The blue one was sponged in Chocolate Chip ink and then the snowflake was stamped with Close to Cocoa ink.

The skaters were stamped once on to a post-it note and I cut them out making my mask for the card. To create the scene, I stamped the skaters once in Chocolate Chip on the Vanilla cardstock scallop. Then I placed the post-it note mask on top of my stamped skaters to protect the image on the card front. Next I stamped the tree line from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set in Night of Navy ink, partially covering the skaters. When I removed the post-it note mask, my stamped skaters appeared to be skating on a pond in the woods.

To create the icy pond, I colored on the vanilla cardstock under their feet with my 2-Way Glue Pen and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, tapping off the excess. This whole vanilla layer was sponged as well with Chocolate Chip ink.

The inside of the card was layered with Very Vanilla as well, sponged and stamped with the snowflake image. I added a greeting from Many Merry Messages too.

This is probably my favorite card that I created this past season, definitely one that I'll save. Hope you like it too!
Stay warm,
