DV #229 Christmas In July

Our challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers is Christmas in July and we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.

My card is a combination of Amy’s Design and Tonic Dies for the main area., Amy’s Design being the decorative frame and Tonic the sentiment.

I die cut these from white pearl card. They are matted onto mauve shimmer card/paper.

The little ice skate is a chloe stamp. It does actually also come as a combo stamp and die but I bought it when it was just the stamp. So I stamped it onto shrink plastic and cut it out by hand! Tricky round the actual blade part and coloured it with crayons and then shrunk it.

A few mauve gems in the opposite corner and the card was done!
