Holiday Ice Skates

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog.

IT'S NEW RELEASE TIME! The new Christmas dies are in the online store with 40 new designs and they are on a limited time sale at 30% off. It's not too soon to get started on your Christmas cards. 

Today for your viewing pleasure I am featuring the new Holiday Ice Skate Floral  and the Merry Christmas w/Snowflakes dies.  So let's get started with some details of how I created my card. 

Design Steps:

I started my card this week with the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #864. We were to use real red, bermuda bay and black for the color trio. 
bermuda bay, real red, black
Optional was to use something weathered. I went with a distressed designer paper. 

Red card base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
Medium brown layering panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer paper panel: 4 3/8" x 5 3/8"
Next, I cut my ice skates and the floral images in the challenge colors. 
I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment in red. I decided to cut it 2x to give more dimension to my card. 
Now that all my card elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached both layering panels to the card base using double sided tape. 
To attach the images I used a combo of double sided tape, glue dots and art glitter glue (my new fave -it dries clear). I scattered a few bermuda bay sequins and my card is completed. 
I hope I have given you a fresh idea on a way to use this new ice skate and sentiment die. And, remember they are both on sale.

See you next week!
