This work might be best described as a "mixed media." Featuring a resingrave print by Dale made from wood pulp, abaca, cedar bark, and other natural fibers, it is presented with an overlay featuring molded paper objects, natural seaweed and shells by Sitka artist Mary Sarvela of Alaska Beach Treasures, circa 1996.

Over the years, DeArmond created a number of Christmas cards. These were often hand pulled personally by Dale and not generally available for purchase – they were given to close friends and family. Early examples date from the 1950s; a later example in 2000 was when the DeArmonds (Dale and her husband, Bob) announced that a reprint of the book The First Man would be a "Grand Finale" to her cards. They continued sending cards until at least 2003. These featured images Dale had already produced for her prints, but many were unique and exclusive to these cards. Her hand-pulled examples were often personalized, signed (or initialed) by Dale and/or Bob, and are rarely available on the open market. The following images represent a few of these cards.
DeArmond was commissioned by Scanlon Gallery in Sitka, Alaska (now closed; still operates in Ketchikan, Alaska) in 1983 to produce a series of Raven Christmas cards; shown below (red and dark navy-blue examples) are cards produced by Arrowhead Press from Sitka in 2003. Both series of cards were designed by DeArmond but were mass-produced and not personally pulled by the artist.
