This week the Stamp Ink Paper Design Team are sharing projects with the theme of At the Lodge. Here’s a bit of a different spin on the theme- ice skaters. I’ve not actually been to a lodge in winter but it’s perceivable to think there will be a frozen pond with folks enjoying the winter sports. Here is the perfect scene in Cambridge Carols stamp set paired with Puzzle Thinlits dies in a vintage style.

Christmas Puzzle card
It’s the first thought that came to mind with this stamp set from the Stampin’ Up!® Holiday Catalog- to create the look of a vintage Christmas puzzle. By embossing the Puzzle Thinlits die instead of die cutting the paper, the look of a puzzle comes through the design. The image was first colored with Watercolor Pencils then distressed a bit with gray and light brown ink.
The sentiment is a bit different, it swings away from the card front! It was born of necessity, as I wanted a sentiment but did not want to cover up the image of the puzzle. Turning it into a bit of a fold out card brings a small element of surprise and fun to this vintage project. Be sure to watch the video tutorial at the link below.
