“Faux-leather” Classic Large Ice Skate by Jean Okimoto


P1020407 2



Create the look of a leather boot for the new Classic Large Ice Skate.  It's plain, practical white vinyl - and it's as easy to diecut as cardstock.  Hi, Jean Okimoto here on a very cold and windy weekend. It's perfect indoor cardmaking weather!

Attach adhesive label paper - or a sticker sheet - behind white vinyl and diecut Classic Large Ice Skate.  The paper layer stabilizes and stiffens the vinyl.  Cut another skate from heavy white cardstock and layer the diecuts for dimension.  If your green thread or cord is floppy and/or fuzzy - pull it tightly over piece of beeswax.  Or pull it through a wad of scrunched waxed paper to stiffen it and remove the little fuzzies.  Stitch the boot and cut an extra piece of twine.   Insert one end of the extra piece through the top hole and tie a bow.  Arrange the loops then cut off the extra portion.

Cut the sole and heel portion from dark brown cardstock.  Cut the blade from a gold 6x6 in the Rainbow Reflections Mirror Pad.

Cut Poinsettia Watercolor Floral from the red Polished Foil 6x6 and a sheet from the Berry Red Collection.  Cut the center pieces from the gold Glitzy Glitter Pad sheet.  Assemble the poinsettia.

Diecut Forest Pine Branch from a 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection and cut it into three sections.

Cut the red and black Jolly Christmas plaid sheet with the 3" wide Nested Globes die.  Cut a  bright lime Lush Green 6x6 with the 2" wide globe die.

Stamp the greeting - from the new Sweet Christmas Clear Stamp Set - on a Lush Green 6x6 with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair.  Dry the ink and cut the greeting with the 2-¾" x 1" Rectangle Basics die.  


Attach the diecuts to a white A6 card (4-½" x 6-¼") - use foamdots for the top half of the skate and for the greeting. 

Add red Christmas Fairy Crystals.  Cut an A6-sized layer of cardstock to protect the card front for mailing.

Thanks for visiting - and for your patience w/ the blog's problems.  

Have a great weekend...see you next week!
