This wasn't the card I intended to create at all! I had chosen a lovely Santa stamp to use for this challenge & stamped it ready to use but when I began looking through my huge stash of Tim Holtz products I had so many ideas whizzing around my head & knowing that I am happiest creating what I feel like making I just went with it!

I die cut the ice skates and roughly added the creases in the skates with my copics and then added distress inks to them to add colour. I heat embossed some Stampendous Frantage Embossing Enamel to the blades to add a little texture and interest to them.

I embossed a background using Tim Holtz Holiday Words embossing folder and ink blended some Antique Linen lightly over it and then ink blended over lots of different die cuts to use as embellishments including SSS Maryanne Snowflake, Pine Needles, Holly Fanfare, Holly & Pine Frame, & Mini Stars wafer dies
