Holiday Ice Skates

Hello Blogger friends! Happy Saturday to you all. Hope your weekend has some fun mixed into it. 

We are going to take a drive today to go Fall leaf watching. Something we haven't done for a couple of years. We will also find a nice out of the way restaurant to stop and get something to eat. It should be a fun day. So I wanted to get this Blog post done before we head out the door.

This is a card I made for my weekly DT post on the CottageCutz Blog and also for the color challenge #864 on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use real red, bermuda bay and black for the color trio.
 Optional was to use something weathered. I went with a distressed designer paper.

Red card base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
Medium brown layering panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Designer paper panel: 4 3/8" x 5 3/8"
Next, I cut my ice skates and the floral images in the challenge colors.
I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment in red. I decided to cut it 2x to give more dimension to my card.
Now that all my card elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached both layering panels to the card base using double sided tape.
To attach the images I used a combo of double sided tape, glue dots and art glitter glue (my new fave -it dries clear). I scattered a few bermuda bay sequins and my card is completed.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.

card details:
Paper: real red, soft suede, basic black, whisper white, bermuda bay, (Stampin'-Up), BoBunny dsp, gray metallic cardstock (Hobby Lobby),
Paper Size: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
Accessories: Holiday Ice Skate Floral, Merry Christmas w/Snowflakes dies (CottageCutz), bermuda bay sequins (Stampin'-Up)
