Happy New Gear Ice Skates Card

Created this card with a whimsy twist on Happy New Year(HNY) phrase using Simon Says Stamps to be:
Happy New Gear.

Embossed using Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. For the base I used Kraft that has fuzzy white dots on it. Stamped the skates & cut out with SSS die. For sparkle I used a silver marker & Wink of Stella clear pen on the blades of the skates. Tied the skates to the card using twine & added a silver heart.

  1. What a sweet card. I always think of my childhood when I see ice skates. I grew up in Minnesota, and we would skate at every opportunity on one of the local rinks or ponds in our neighborhood. Thanks for sharing in our New Years Challenge this week, and please join us again soon.

    1. When I first moved to TX I took a basic ice skating class. Had not ice skated before. Enjoyed the class and took 2nd class as well. Had only roller skated before. I like ice skating over roller skating.
