Ice Skates Shabby Chic Card

Created this Ice Skates Card with a Shabby Chic look to it. Used Tim Holtz Ice Skates die. Recycled cereal box cardboard for back of ice skates for sturdiness. Threaded the ice skates with twine. Not had much luck with the first 2 thread holes at bottom of ice skates and always wondered why the bottom 2 holes were so close to the edge and the thread can come out; whereas the other holes are not near the edge and are more like holes that can be threaded. Has anyone else had this same problem?

Used TH Distress Ink to distress the ice skates. Used silver stickles on ice skates blades.

Added ribbon & snowflake buttons which I cut the back of the buttons off so could use flat for embellishing. Added a wobble to back of ice skates for action effect.

Stamped Simon Says Stamp sentiment.
