Both of my card feature this incredibly beautiful Di-Versions die "Whispers Skate Around".  I must tell you, I LOVE these dies.  They cut cleanly and the detailing is incredible.  


I paired the "Skate Around" skate die with RI Stamp #8810-H "Snow Much Fun".  I created this card by first die cutting the skate image in white cs, then centering and cutting it through the two blue layers, one at a time.  The bottom layer is then adhered to a piece of printer paper covered in double sided tape and the white skates are placed inside the opening in the blue layers.  Once adhered, I ran them through an embossing folded and adhered it to the front card base.  I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cs, distressed it with DI "Tumbled Glass", trimmed it, and placed it on dimensional tape and adhered it to the front of the card.  The "stars" were added using Viva Glitter Pen "Hologram"


RI stamps used on this card are #8805-K "Snowflakes" for the background and #424-G "Wishing You a Season".  


We hope that we have inspired you to be creative, and that you'll do a bit of shopping at the Die-Versions and Repeat Impressions' websites!

Thanks for stopping by today!
