Hallmark Challenge/Ice Skates


The challenge on the Hallmark Scrapbook Messageboard this week was to use the Joys of the Season cartridge/Cricut, and use the ice skates. Being an Arizona gal, my mind doesn't go there! I was an avid roller skater and my one attempt at ice skating was a complete flop. Anyway I was able to come up with a little card nonetheless. The paper was run thru the Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder, and while I was cutting on the JOS cart, I also cut the mittens, the sled and the far away trees. I used silver pigment ink on the sled runners and the skate blades and then sprinkled silver embossing powder to heat emboss. The tiny tiny snowflake is a $1 punch from Michaels. Gotta love those buck bins...
