Skating Memories I Love
Cut a peace of 12 x 5.8 inch's card stock in Black and then fold in half and crease.  Then cut a peace of purple decorative card stock 14 cm by 10 cm, I have allowed extra card so that you can add the ribbon.   The stripped card stock on the bottom of my card is 14 cm by 6 cm.  I joined my decorative card stock together by laying my two peaces of decorative card stock together on my card, this will give you an idea as where to place your card stock.

Stick your two peaces of card stock together with a peace of double sided tape, allow to see your black card stock under neath.  I then put a peace of purple poka dot ribbon across my card and stuck down with red double sided tape, you will find the red tape stronger.  I got my red tape from craft Jeanie on Face Book.   Cut the ribbon longer than your card and fold the ends in under your card. once you have done this you can stick to front of your card.

Stitch around your card with Straight stitch with your black cotton.

Colour  your Christmas image in from PokaDoodle, I used Derwent water coloured pencils for this, I then cut my image out with a Die using my Cuttlebug and sponged around the edge with Tim Holts ink Dusty concord.

The Decorations on my card the Ice skates, Hat, Mittens and snow flake are creative memories stickers.  Under my image are two rows of stickers one on each side of the ribbon.
I olso used the Snowflake number 8 punch and made a big snowflake for under my image, I cut this in Quarters.  I only used a quarter.  I put two flower bling's one each side  of the bottom corners.  I decorated my card with bling.  Just have fun.
