Created this Christmas/Winter Card using a Tim Holtz Ice Skate die. Distressed the ice skate white cardstock. Paper Pieced the ice skate heels with TH distressed black cardstock. Used VersaMark & added Stamp N Plus Glitzy Silver chalk to the ice skate blades. Stamped Inkadinkado sentiment which already had a wonderful curve to the sentiment. Used Kraft cardstock for base of card.

I love to ice skate. When I first moved to TX my hubby & I took basic ice skating lessons at a mall ice skating rink. I loved it so much that when the first class was done I signed up for the jumps & spins class. Hubby came & watched. I use to roller skate when I was younger and love ice skating better. The ice skating rink in the mall where we took lessons has since closed but there is another ice skating rink that on occasion I go to.
