Skate your troubles away...

This card is so pretty that I don't think my pictures really do it justice.
All images are from the WW cartridge.
I started with a mint green centerstep card base and
matted it with soft hues of blue and pink.
I topped it with embossed white borders that are actually trees, but look like
icicles when they are turned upside down.
The main mat is a scalloped oval done 3x in 1/4" increments,
and ending with a white glitter paper.

The origami Christmas tree is done in two different coordinating papers
and topped with a snowflaked pink star.
The elegant skater is also cut in glitter paper so she sparkles on the ice!
Punched silver hologram snowflakes round out the card front.
This is so much prettier than I imagined it....I love it!
I will be entering this in the following challenges:


  1. Like the dimension the origami Christmas Tree gives to this scene. I learned some origami and can make a bird, piano, swan, and a few others but not tried to make a tree. Thanks for entering Mark's Finest Papers Simple Salutations Christmas Tree challenge.
