The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Oh my gosh,  Wrapped in Plaid 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper has me over the moon with its classic plaid patterns and gold accents…just perfect for complementing gold foil ice skates.

Paper Measurements:

  • Whisper White Thick cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″)
  • Whisper White cardstock (4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″, 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″, 3″ x 3″)
  • Gold Foil (4-1/4″ x 2-3/4″,  2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″,  2 pieces: 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″)
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″)

Instructions:

1.  Score the Whisper White Thick cardstock at 5-1/2″. Fold and crease to form the card base. Adhere the plaid paper to the card front.

2.  Emboss the 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Stylish Scroll embossing folder. Mat onto Gold Foil and adhere to the card base.

3. Punch out a Gold Foil Starburst using the Starburst punch. Stamp the sentiment in Shaded Spruce. Punch out using the 2″ Circle punch and adhere to the Starburst. Add to the card front using dimensionals.

4. Use the Solid Skate from the Detailed Skates Die collection to die cut two skates, one from Gold Foil and one from Whisper White cardstock. Die cut a filigree skate from Gold Foil. Cut the blades from the white skate, and adhere the filigree skate on top. Lace with Whisper White Baker’s Twine. (Use a small whole punch or thick needle to create holes for lacing.)

5. Adhere the solid gold skate to the card base with dimensionals. Adhere the filigree skate on top of the solid gold skate with dimensionals.

6. Thread two Shaded Spruce jingle bells onto Whisper White Baker’s Twine. Create a bow and add to the top of the filigree skate.
