Skating By

     A few days back, my oldest granddaughter (she just turned 21) was over again and we got involved in crafting cards.  She loved this LeAnn's World image of a skater which I had already colored and die cut so she asked if she could use it to design a card.  Making cards is very new to her, although she's watched me make them the majority of her life.  She has even assisted me on a few cards but this was the first one she's done where she took the lead and had all the design decisions.

     I love where her creativity took her, especially the hand-folded frame she put around the image.  Very difficult and I never would have tried that myself!  I did suggest the snowflakes in lieu of flowers for this card and she agreed.  :-D


Colored with ProMarkers
Loose glitter added to her crown
Cut with QuicKutz oval die

Accordion folded CS to frame image

Love her little fan and the snowflakes were a great addition. Thanks for sharing your collaboration with us at Morgan's Artworld
