Wishing You

Hello everyone.  It’s so nice to have Typepad behaving and we can post with photos again!  Yay!  And for today I have a Christmas card featuring the Classic Large Ice Skate with the Layered Birds dies from the 2022 Christmas release.

Started by creating the ice skates.  The boots were die cut from Bristol paper and laced up with white baker’s twine.  The heels were die cut from black cardstock and the blades from silver Vintage Pastel Mirror paper.  The layered bird was die cut from alcohol marker friendly cardstock and colored with Copic Sketch markers.  And last but not least, the Forest Pine Branch was die cut from mixed media paper and watercolored with Zig brush markers.  


The background is a Bristol panel ink blended with Salvaged Patina and Uncharted Mariner distress inks.  Spritz with water and blot with a paper towel, then splattered with diluted white gouache paint.  Heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock with white embossing powder and assembled the card.  Wanted to add more falling snow and accumulated snow to the scene, so used a white gel pen to finish off the scene.


That does it for my card.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.





Amazing card! Love the skates and that cute bird on the branch! Fabulous background too!!

So stunning, Trina!! And thanks for reminding me about my pine branch - really need to get that out!

Gorgeous Trina, such pretty colours and love the skates ♥

I love the layered coloring on this sweet bird and the skates are amazing!
