Skatin' by with a winter hi!

Today is my design day over at SVG Cutting Files and today I am sharing a couple winter themed cards. With the holidays just a few days behind us and still a over a month until Valentine's day, there is still plenty of winter fun to celebrate like sledding, hockey and ice Skating.

The first card features a brand new file in the store now called Chili Skating Girl.

She is so cute. With her little heart on her headband this could easily be a valentines card. Just change the sentiment.

The second card is using an older file from the SVG Cutting Files store from the Winter Kids file set.

I tried a new technique on these cards. I used an acrylic block for stamping, I then selected several different colors of ink pads and rubbed them onto the acrylic block. Next I sprayed the block with a fine mist of water and stamped this wet mess onto my paper. What a cool effect, the colors all bleed together to make a watercolor type background. 

I used some dies to cut out the square background before attaching it to my card.
