Dies R Us ~ Winter Skate

Hello~  I'm up on the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog today with a cool, wintry card that's just full of sparkle and shine. 
Today's card features this wonderful Elizabeth Craft Skate, which I just love!  
 I cut the blade out of silver card stock and the heel out of black and once the skate was assembled, I added a baker's twine lace.  Just look at the detail on this skate!

Just look at this lovely snowflake border by Joy Crafts!  I applied glue from a Zig pen and dusted the whole die cut with Elizabeth Craft Silk Microfine Glitter in Warm Diamond. 
This particular die was available for special order from Dies R Us so it is not regularly stocked, but there are a few other snowflake borders that are just as lovely in the online store.  This one from Precious Marieke is equally stunning!!

I embossed a background panel using a Darice Embossing Folder

I cut these snowflakes out of white Card stock and applied the same Silk Microfine Glitter Treatment to them, using  the color Sea Glass.  They are stunning in real life.  

Here's the completed card.  There's so much sparkle and shine, I just wish it came out better in the photo's.

Here's a list of products I used to create this card:
I used a couple of dies that were  part of the same special order deal, so be sure to sign up for the Dies R Us Newsletter.  You'll be the first to know when they offer special order dies and when they are having awesome sales.

That skate die is definitely the nicest one I've seen of all the skate dies; it is very accurate and looks so good on your wintery card. Love that snowflake border too and the EF you used. Heck I like everything about your card. I might just case it for next year's Christmas card.
