Ice skate Christmas card


Every year I get asked to make Christmas cards with these ice skates. I have used a Stamps by Chloe stamp to make the ice skates. I stamped the image onto white card and cut the "blades" in mirror card for a realistic finish. I added a die cut holly embellishment with flat backed gems on the front of the skates. I stamped and die cut the candy in white card and then coloured the stripes with a red pen. I matt and layered my 8x8in white card blank with mirror card and then red glitter card. I die cut a sentiment with a Sue Wilson die and added to the toppers I cut with dies from a Spellbinders nesting set before attaching to my card. I attached the skates to my card using foam pads. I completed my card with snowflakes cut with a Cheery Lynn die.
