Christmas Card Challenge - Sept - Skate Diecut Banner
The focus of the challenge is to include with skates, die cut and a banner. I cut the Tim Holtz Bigz Die - Ice Skates from some warm blue card stock. I cut the skate blade again from blue metallic card stock and trimmed it and adhered over the card stock skate. I laced it with some heavy crochet cotton and finished it with a bow at the top. I added a white snowflake punch to the ankle area. I chose a deep warm blue card. I embossed a white layer with the large Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. I added a banner greeting which was stamped with Stampin Up sentiment from the Home for Christmas set with Marina Mist on the same card stock as the skate. I trimmed it close and use the Triple Banner punch to flag both ends and mounted it onto a piece of dark warm blue card stock.
