Frosty Skates – by Deb Saaranen

Special: 10% of your order BACK in FREE RIBBON – details further down.

Deb’s card today portrays such a vintage feel with the white figure skates and crepe paper rosette border. It brings back such memories.  I had gotten skates just like these one year for Christmas and couldn’t wait to go skating at the outdoor rink in our small town.  Oh, such memories… Take a look:

This card is so very beautiful!


Here’s a closer look at the gorgeous crepe paper rosette type border Deb created.

She used a heavy vintage type crepe paper by Melissa Frances.

All that gorgeous snowy sparkle was created using Twinklets Diamond Dust.

You can find Deb’s post on her blog here.
