Hi everyone! Well, this weekend is about over – hope you’ve had a fun one! This month’s challenge is live over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #41 – December Anything Goes! I created an awesome Christmas card to add to my stash featuring the amazing Tim Holtz Ice Skates die. I absolutely love this die and CASE’d my own design from a few months back that I created for another design team. If you’re interested, you can see it HERE.


I used a pretty plaid embossing folder for the background and lightly sanded it while it was still in the folder. I added red glitter Washi Tape and gold Skinny Washi Tape, along with two shiny red Candi Minis and two awesome Tim Holtz ice skate die cuts. I lightly inked the edges of the ice skates to make them look worn, colored the heels black and painted the blades with a silver metallic paint marker, and laced them up with cord. I cut three ivory ‘believe’ die cuts and one red die cut for a tone-on-tone look, and layered them all together.


I embellished the inside panel with a leftover strip of red cardstock and stamped the inside sentiment which is from Unity Stamps.


One more look… love, love, love! Can’t wait to send this one! ;)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
