Merry Christmas Skates Die-Versions Post

{This is a scheduled post} Happy Monday!! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!! It's my turn to post on the Die-Versions blog and I have a couple of Christmas cards to share with you today using several Die-Versions dies. If you use the code lisa15 you'll receive 15% off your regular price (does not include sale prices) Die-Versions order.


The papers are from Maja Designs Vintage Winter stack. 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 DecoArt 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.


Thanks so much for stopping by!! I'll be by to visit when I return :)

  12. The crackling on the skates is wonderful. Are the skate dies easier to thread compared to the Tim Holtz skate dies? Also did you thread before applying the crackle or after?
