Ski Card and other stuff


This is a crazy time of year for family birthdays so I’ve been completely snowed under with card making and other craft projects, most of which I will be able to share here after the events so as not to ruin any surprises. So don’t worry if I seem a bit quiet, I am here, I’m just busy. You don’t get rid of me that easily mwahahahaha!

I did see something interesting today. As you will know, I started to post my rolled flower cut files here on 24th January, well Silhouette posted a rolled flower as their free cut file of the week yesterday…great minds think alike ;)

Ok, My Brother’s birthday has passed by so I can share the card I sent to him, He was just back from a skiing holiday and I wanted to make a card to help remind him of it, even going as far as colour matching his clothing. As I said with the motorbike card, I made this for my own use but I am more than happy to share it with you just be warned the Skier has a couple of teeny weeny pieces. I’ve given you the card base and the skier separately as I figured the base may be handy for other uses, you may want a cyclist or rollerskater etc for your card. I added a thin strip of card to the back of my skier with a 3d foam pad to make a traditional slider card but you can also turn this card into a penny spinner card too, I was tempted to make a spinner card to make my skier tumble down the slope but resisted the urge, lol.

I scattered some trees made from triangles of card with some Woodware ‘Puffy Stuff’ for the snow.

I used some mirror card for the goggle lenses.

    I love this card! I also saw the rolled flowers on the Silhouette site and giggled as I like yours better. I have a stack of them finished and waiting for just the right card. Thanks so much Bird!

    Wonderful job Bird. This is a fantastic card and I love all the details you put into the scenery and the skier. As for the rolled flowers, great minds may think a like, but your mind is way a head of the competition. I also like your rolled flower better. Thank you so much. Enjoy your family!

    Yet another amazing card…so clever! It would have been funny to see the skier tumble down the slope, but I am sure your brother appreciated that it didn’t!
