Happy skating

  I thought I would make a card to use up some of the papers that I had printed off previously when making cards before Christmas. The background paper for the front of the card was printed from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse insert CD ROM. I matted and layer this and blue mirri card onto white card and then added glitter to the snow. The image is from Joanna Sheen's set of Gruffies stamps and  I coloured it using Promarkers. I then matted it onto blue mirri card cut out with a Spellbinders floral oval die and added some glitter to the snow at the bottom of the skates. I fixed this to the background with foam pads.
   I formed the shape of a twisted easel card by scoring diagonally across the front of  a square card. I fixed the  above design to the lower triangle formed by this fold.
   Onto the base of the card I matted and layered white glitter silk core'dinations and blue mirri card. Down the right hand side of this I matted and layered a strip of paper printed from La Pashe's 'Christmas with the Wrinkles' CD ROM and blue mirri card.  The stop for the easel was also made using another paper printed form this CD ROM and blue mirri card.
