Ice Princess....

Happy Tuesday!

** Ok...this is a "my bad" addition to today's post....Apparently I made the blade backwards! Ugh.  SO sorry to all you skaters out there.  I promise I'll fix it and repost the pics
So....DON'T copy this blade. **
Today I have a really pretty project for you that's dedicated to a very sweet synchro ice skater I know.  :-)
Don't ask me why but this project has been in my head for over a week.  It wouldn't leave me alone!
Today I visited my friend, Robin, and when I came home I gave in and put this little project together.

So....Emma.....this one's for YOU....


This is another gift card holder made using the Stocking Die for the Big Shot.  This one is made from Bravo Burgundy card stock.  I stamped the flourish image from the Pines and Pointsettias stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog. 

I used Versamark ink and then embossed them with the Pewter Embossing Powder.  The oval frame is made from Whisper White card stock and run through the Big Shot in the oval Designer Frame embossing folder.  Then I sponged Versamark ink around the edges and embossed it with the Pewter embossing powder too.  I embossed the monogram using the Lovely Letters Alphabet set on Whisper White card stock and then punched it out with the XL Oval Punch.  It fits perfectly in the oval frame.  Cool, huh?  I added a bow made from the 5/8" White Satin Ribbon and finished it off with two of those stinkin' cute Jingle Bells that are new in the Mini too.
The Merry Christmas stamp is from the Christmas Lodge stamp set.

The blade on the skate is cut from a piece of the new Silver Glimmer Paper #124005.  Love it!

Here's the inside that shows the slot for the gift card....

Have a magical day!
