I sat down at my craft table yesterday wanting to make something, but no idea what. I began to pick up some scraps to put away and realized they could work together pretty well. Then I remembered a challenge this week to use the ice skate from the Winter Woodland cartridge. I put it all together and Voila'!
The card measures 5 1/2" x 4 3/4". The background paper is some I bought a couple of years ago on the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby. There was no lable. The embossed piece was a preformed card that I didn't get the folder on straight when I was making a Christmas card. So I cut it up to use. The folder is the Cuttlebug snowflakes. The silver cutout you will see again in the next post. The paper is from Die Cuts With a View, Textures and Patterns stack. I cut this in 3 sizes to determine what I wanted for my card for this weeks My Sheri Crafts challenge. It's a beautiful cut from Paper Lace, "Lace 2" feature. This one is cut at 4" with a few I-Rock gems added. I used glitter paper for the skate (cut at 2 1/2"), but didn't get a picture that shows the sparkle. I cut the skate a 2nd time from the silver paper and just used the blade and the bow.
I hope you like it, I was pleased with how it turned out. And it cleaned up my table a little more!
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back in a little bit for the new My Sheri Crafts challenge. You'll see some great projects from the team again this week!
