Barbara here and let me welcome you to 2014.I'm sure by now you've heard that quite a few times. Today I am taking a trip back in time, back to the late 50's and early 60's when winters were colder, and much more snowy. When I was a kid, I loved going ice skating on a lake about a mile from my house. On weekends we'd all get together and go skating and build a fire and have a blast.. So when I spied the skates die from Tim Holtz/Sizzix, that really brought those memories back home.And of course I had to have those.
Let me share this card with you.
Those skates in the background are a wooden pair I bought years ago at a craft fair. Couldn't pass them up., they are so nostalgic. BTW, I still have my skates from my teen years and they still fit. Now I am not so sure I could skate today, though. LOL
The bow made for this card has 3 loops on each side of the knot and after I fuss with it a minute or two, the bow becomes really fluffy. I thought a fluffy bow would be the perfect addition to this card.
Components I used on this card:
Dies -Ice Skates Sizzix/Tim Holtz, Circle Spellbinders, Striped Mittens - Memory Box Precious Mittens
Embroidery Floss - for laces on skates
Stamped Sentiment - Heartfelt Creations - Christmas Sentiment Circles
Paper/Card Stock - Cream Card Stock, White Card Stock, Vellum, DCWV (used under vellum)
Ink - Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire
Bow Maker - Craft-Dee BowZ tool
