Hi to you all 
A big hi to all the new followers thanks for joining in the fun 

I think its time I started a few more Christmas cards
 best time to make them sat out in my garden in the sun lol
so I have made one yesterday and here it is 

To make this card I have used a pre scored card and made it into a twisted easel card shape 
I have coloured the top part and the bottom edge with promakers 
I have coloured my digi stamp I got from the internet with ptomakers and have cut it out I used a template to cut out my wording from paterned snow flake card  and have hand stitched around the edge using a template to prick out the pattern I then added some silver paper behind  and placed my digi stamp on to It in the corner and added some gems then glued this to the top part of my card I also added 2 skating boots charms to the bottom corner 
for the bottom I used silver paper then patterned card and  a strip of silver paper and punched out some circles with 2 punches
 one punches out a small half circle in the centre then the second punch punches out the circle so I was able to attach them to the side of the paper strip I then put foam pads on the back and stuck down 
I used my die cutting machine to cut out my second Ice skates and layered them up to look 3 d I coloured the top layer in to match the digi  stamped skates I added some more gems 

I would like to enter this card for some challenges ( charms die cuts punches stitching )
