Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. Before I show you my project for today, I have a few questions for you. What are your favorite colors to use for your Christmas or Holiday cards? And do you tend to use the same colors each year? Non Traditional Colors is our theme this week for our blog hop and if you know me well, you know that I like to use colors for Christmas that you may not even think would work. Try these for instance:
The Free Skate Bundle is so much fun to play with and there’s so many possibilities. There are many ways to use the stamped images or die-cuts to create beautiful layered skates for a card. For mine, I used the bold shape die-cut and layered a delicate shaped die-cut skate on top:
Here are the layers and measurements I used:
- Card Base: Balmy Blue Cardstock 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
- Layer #2: Brightly Gleaming Designer Paper 5-1/4″ x 4″. Glue to card front.
- Layer #3: Cut a rectangle that measures 4″ long from the Stitched Rectangles Dies using the Copper Foil Sheets and glue to the center of the card front.
- Layer #4: Cut a rectangle that measures 3-1/2″ long from the Stitched Rectangles Dies using Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp the sentiment using Copper Ink (ours is now sold out) at the top right corner. Glue to copper rectangle to the right using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Skates: Cut (2) skates using the bold shape outline die and Night Of Navy Cardstock and cut off the blades from the skates. Cut (2) skates using the delicate die and Balmy Blue Cardstock. Layer and glue over the navy skates. Cut (2) using the blade die with the Copper Foil Sheets. Glue the blades to the skates. Layer the skates on top of each other using Stampin’ Dimensionals. Glue to the sentiment layer.
- Bow: Cut (1) bow using the die and Whisper White Cardstock. Glue to the top of the skates.
- Bling: Add some Holiday Rhinestones Jewels to the sentiment layer and one to the bow.
