Winter Skates

I was invited by the Crafting by Designs team to join them as a Guest Designer for their Winter/Glitter/Sparkles Challenge and this is the card that I made.


I used a decoupage image and papers from Studio Light and added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the star and the skate blades.  My base layers are corrugated card with white paint added to the edges.


The trees are a Joy Crafts Die cut from corrugated card, I have added white paint and glitter for the snow.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Snowflakes Promise Challenge 14 - Anything Goes
Crafty Boots Challenge - Ribbon or Lace
Jingle Belles Challenge - Oh Christmas Tree
CHNC Challenge Extra for January - Anything Goes

Thank you for popping in today, your company is much appreciated.

I love the paper, it looks like your card is decorated with lots of die cuts on the top part, but I believe it's just the paper being very dimensional looking. And love the way the corrugated trees with paint look as well and it's a beautiful wintery image.
