Sparkly Skates Christmas Card

This might actually be my favourite card I’ve made from the Autumn/Winter catalogue this year. It did take a while to make the boots, mainly because my lacing skills are not great.

To make the boots I cut two outline boots from Silver Foil and two of detailed boots from the Sparkle Glimmer Paper. After removing all the inner bits from the Sparkle skates I cut the bottom skate blade off so I was left with just the boot.

To make the laces I coloured some of the Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine with the Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends and left it to dry. If you have any red bakers twine in your stash you could use that, or any other colour.

I chose red laces for the boots as I used the snowflake paper from the Let It Snow Speciality DSP and I wanted to highlight the pops of red in the paper.

After lacing the boots I used the silicone craft matt and a sponge dauber to apply Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to the back of the sparkle die cut boot and adhered to the silver foil boots.

To finish the card I added a Real Red die cut bow to the top of the boots and a greeting stamped on a frame cut from the Frosted Bouquet dies.

Happy Crafting
