Roller Skate Card

Hi, Jenny from Jen's Crafty Place here to show you a very quick but fun card for any occasion. I actually used these cards for an invitation to a roller skating party but you can use it for anything. A fun birthday card for a child, a "let's roll" card to invite someone to a night out, a memory card for when you used to go roller skating, or just a fun card to say hi to a active person!


Before we get into the card instructions, don't forget to "roll" over to Miss Kate Cuttables for their daily freebie!!



First off, buy your set of skates! You can make male or female skates! I cut the female ones out with my Silhouette Cameo 3. I just layered all the pieces together and glued them with craft glue. Nothing special or hard to do.


I just did a simple card base of pink with some glitter paper to mimic the "disco balls" we used to skate too in the old days and I see they still use them today!!
I taped the back skate down with tape and used some foam adhesive to pop up the top skate to add some layers and to add movement I tilted the skate a bit to look like it is in motion.
I added some tiny decorative dots in the corner and this card is done!!



I love this card! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Thanks for stopping by!
Jen
