For my card today I combined 3 of the new die sets. My focal point is the Ice Skating Girl that I cut out and covered in Glitter. You can also used glitter cardstock instead.
For my background I used the Holiday Knit Border to create a lovely design. At the back of the this design I also added glitter paper that shows through the openings. I used my distress oxide inks to add color to my panels and of course I did some water splatters too!
The sentiment comes from the Tiny Words Christmas stamp set, that I absolutely love. It’s packed with pretty much any stamp set you will need for the holidays! Finally I used the Nested Banners die set to cut it out. I used the smallest of the fish tail ones.

Hi Vicky. I never seem to get that fabulous blend of colour that you get, but perhaps I’m just not using the correct paper. Love everything about this sweet card, the gorgeous red background and the pretty, glittery little girl. It’s a lovely card.

Whether it’s hot or cold, I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas. Thanks for sharing so much with us this year – it’s been so much appreciated and enjoyed.
