Birthday Skates

Happy Friday. I hope you had a good week. The big snow we got a few weeks ago is still melting at least I can see the street now. Thankfully we have not gotten anymore big snow but it is still cold here at least the sun is out though. I have been busy working on a custom order most of the week. I finally got it done and mailed out this morning. The customer requested an ice skating card for her 8 yr old niece. She said that her favorite colors were purple and pink and it needed to be very girly. This is what I came up with.
I started by cutting 2 ice skates using the On Ice dies and stamped them in black with the cordinating stamp. Next I covered the boots with angel dust glitter and the blades with silver glitter. Finally I added black floss to the laces and tied bows. The pattern paper is from this digital paper pack I added a Hisbiscus Ribbon tied in a bow at the top then attached a purple button threaded with more black floss and attached the tails to the skates so it looks like they are hanging. The sentiment from Birthday Basics was stamped on a double ended banner diecut and stamped with the coordinating image. 2 purple rhinestones finish it off. I am really happy with how it came out. The customer loved it too. That's all of now I hope your weekend is a great one and I will be back soon with more to share.

Gcard. I can understand why the customer loved it. I am sure she will be requesting more cards from you. Love the digi paper you used. Yes, your card is girly, especially with those colors.

You certainly did make it girlie. Very pretty. Those skates are fabulous. I love all the glitter and the floss. They do look like they are hanging from the bow.

What a great card. Every time I see those ice skates, I swoon just a little bit. I wish I could use them, but they would need to be soccer cleats for me, and those are not pretty. All your little touches, like the glitter, and the button make the card that much more special.
