If you have a figure skater in your family, then I don’t need to translate for you. But if not, then SK8 GR8 = skate great. This weekend is the annual Ice Show at my daughter’s rink and we are ALL excited. Time to collect all 4 of her costumes, make sure she has skates, make-up, props… The atmosphere is one big haze of excitement around here!
The card above is one I actually created this winter for Abby’s team skating coach. All 24 of the girls wanted to sign her birthday card, so I used the ice skate I carved from the new Undefined Stamp Carving Kit (available in my online store). The card is sized to fit many signatures — each ‘page’ is 6″ x 6″.
3 Panel Card Instructions (super simple)
- Cut two card stock pieces to 6″ x 12″ and score in the center of each.
- Overlap the center panels and adhere.
- Decorate as desired!
Supplies – all available in my Online Store:
- Remembering Your Birthday stamp set (131350)
- Blue Ribbon stamp set (125981)
- Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper (132995)
- Undefined Stamp Carving Kit (133402)
If you’d like to try your hand at carving your own stamps, I highly recommend the Undefined kit! The kit contains all the tools you need to carve, plus some sample designs to copy if you feel uninspired. And you get plenty of rubber and blocks in the box — no stress about ‘messing up’ and ruining the whole kit. Plus you can get a refill kit for only $9.95, which makes these some pretty budget-friendly stamps!
