2015 Christmas Card #3
I picked inspiration from the layout of the CASE card over at CASEing Christmas. I had several ideas for this card, but I went with my original idea of using my ice skates die from Tim Holtz.
The flower of the CASE card has a metallic look, that what made me think of the skates.
Even though I love purple I went with warm grey colored DPs. The one I used for the banner has Christmas greetings in Norwegian printed on it, so I felt it wasn't necessary to add a sentiment.
I also used a MB die cut snowflake I had in my box of already cut elements, and I used a punch to make the smaller ones. I added purple gems to their centres. For the iceskates I used silver mirri card and white paper. I inked the heals using walnut DI. I used sewing thread for the laces and added two bows made with seambiding ribbon.
This card is for these challenges:
1) CASE-ing Christmas - CASE #2
2) Die Cut Divas - ANYTHING GOES
3) Cut it Up - #62 Cut It Up
