Ice Skates Mini Christmas Card

For Artic Fox OSAAT DT Ch194 click here.  

Created this Mini Christmas card using:
1.  Fiskars sentiment stamps
2. Tim Holtz embosing folder
3. TH ice skates die <-- I discovered and probably others know this but I was not aware of that TH magnetic tray and TH magnetic dies work in the Sizzix BIGkick as well as TH Vagabond so I used Sizzix BIGkick since Cuttlebug Mania requires non electric machine and challenge this wk is Distressing and I distressed the ice skates with TH sander & TH Distress Ink

Supplies List 

ink: VersaFine Onyx Black
machine: Sizzix BIGkick
paper: cardstock - black, blue, white
stamp:  Fiskars tis' the season sentiment
Tim Holtz: Distress Ink - walnut stain, embossing - Seasonal Stuff emb folder, sander
