Ice Skating Fun

Hi, This is a Christmas card I have made for one of my beautiful Nieces 'Fabia', The stamp looks so much like her.

I started with a 8" x 8" card blank and distressed some pale blue backing paper (printed from craft artist) with a scissors, then used some tumbled glass distress ink.

For the rounded square shape I have used a glitter girls embossing board called emboss to impress, firstly in white, I then went around the edges of the entire shape with some glitter flakes (I absolutely love this stuff, it gets everywhere but it's worth it, I think it's perfect for snowy scenes as it's so dimensional, I think it cost £1.99 from a shop called Buyology.

I then embossed and cut the same shape out of a blue and white snow scene from a digi kit, and added the same glitter flakes.  I then added the fir trees, lamppost and snowflakes (all dies from Aliexpress) and added the glitter flakes.  The baubles were cut from a backing paper, also from a digi kit.

The little iceskater is a digital stamp from Crafts and Me and I printed her onto some watercolour paper and coloured her with promarkers.

I finished by adding some ribbon and berries, both from Aliexpress.

For the inside everything was printed from a digi kit, apart from the holly leaves, which were cut from a woodware punch and coloured with peeled paint distress ink.

Thanks so much for looking and any comments you may leave.
