Skating in a Winter Wonderland....

Winter Wonderland has a wonderful challenge this week....Walking in a Winter Wonderland! So for my entry I tried to make a little skater pop up card. I embossed my snow drifts with my cuttlebug template "Snowflakes",then just cut around the snowflakes so they appear like drifts. I then stamped trees and cut them out and popped them up around the rink. I bought a piece of shiny silver paper to cut out my little pond,then popped her her up on the pond...quite finicky but it worked! Looks like she has this little ice rink all to herself...

I hope my skating in a winter wonderland qualifies for the "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" challenge this week!

  18. This is fabulous Christine. You are so inventive and I don't mind at all that she is skating, not walking. I jut love her and the way she is on that frozen pond with those cute trees and snowdrift. Thanks for playing along at Winter Wonderland. Hope to see you back on Friday. Marianne x
