Skate-shaped cards.....

I thought I'd have a go at a couple of shaped cards again and came up with these. The blue skate is made from papers from the DCWV Winter Wonder stack and the red skate from stash papers.
I cut 2 skates from cardstock with shadow enabled and joined them together at the top to make the card base. Another skate the same size was cut from paper and adhered to the skate base. A smaller skate (shadow OFF) was cut from silver mirri and patterned papers, decorated with pearls coloured with permanent markers and a silver cord bow.
The sentiments were adhered to scalloped circles cut from paper. The white circles were embossed, then adhered to the scalloped circles. The sentiments were cut from glittercard then the completed circles were adhered to the skate tops with foam pads. A ready-made snowflake and a poinsetta were used as extra embellishment. The skates are quite big- cut at 6 1/4" -and will fit into an 8" square envelope. I tried to make a decent sized one to fit the original bug/Create but the largest cut is 5 1/2" and is quite weeny- not big enough for a stand-alone card. Sorry folks!
