Ice Skates Xmas New Gear/Year Card

Created this Christmas/New Year card with a vintage ice skating look.

Used Tim Holtz Mini Ice Skate die. Sanded the TH cardstock. Cut out 2 Th Mini Ice Skates. Used black Sharpie marker for coloring the ice skate heels. Used Wink of Stella silver pen to color the ice skate blades.

Stamped Simon Says Stamp sentiment that fits for both Christmas & New Year with a bit of a pun on the ice skates.

Used pink flocked Kraft cardstock for a bit of a vintage girly look.

Added rope. Misted/spritzed the ice skates with water for more weathered vintage look.
