At last month’s Shoebox Swap, I was able to make this beautiful Free Skate card. The purpose of the swap was for demonstrators to make and share projects from the Holiday Catalog. We each brought all the precut materials to use for stamping and assembling our design. This allowed us to create a variety of cards in just a couple of hours . Today’s card uses the Free Skate Bundle. The bundle includes the Free Skate Cling Stamp Set and the Detailed Skate Dies. The card also showcases the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper. I would like to thank the card designer, Jamie Lavender, for the beautiful layout and product selection. Isn’t it gorgeous?
- Card base is Pretty Peacock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4″).
- For the next layer, cut a piece of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper 5-1/4″ x 4″. Attach to the card base using Snail Adhesive.
- Use the Detailed Skate Dies to cut the skate. The skate base and ties are cut from Pretty Peacock cardstock. The lacy pattern on the skate uses Whisper White cardstock and the skate blades are Gold Foil paper. Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen to attach the layers to the skate base.
- Stamp the sentiment using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad onto a 3-1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Use Tuxedo Black Memento Ink to stamp the Holly. Color the holly leaves with the Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends.
- Cut the sentiment piece using the Stitched Labels Dies and attach to the card base with Snail Adhesive.
- Add Red Rhinestones to the berries on the holly.
- Finish the card by adding the skate to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
