Winter Skates

I'm continuing in my "winter" cardmaking. Most of these will be used as Thank You cards for Christmas presents and the like.

For this card I started with strawberry cardstock and stamped some flourishes (Rhonna Farrer) in Versamark. The "vintage" is from Hampton Art. I used a vintage skating poster which I found in the Memories of a Lifetime Christmas book. I distressed that a little with some distress ink and then added a vintage skating image from Crafty Secrets. The flower at the bottom is one I found at an antique shop. The lace at top was an RAK from my friend Lyneen. Finally, I punched some Basic Grey paper with my Martha Stewart border punch to add the two side borders.

"Strawberry cardstock." What a lovely, evocative description! Your finished card certainly does it justice-- the whole thing is mouthwatering! Thanks for sharing, Louise.

Best Wishes,
