My little boy loves LOVES loves hockey. He breathes, eats, and sleeps hockey. And he's been like this since he was 1. In less than two months Denver turns 4 and he has just graduated to "big boy" skates from his bobsled skates. Needles to say, this is a triumphant goal for him and according to him, he can now play hockey.
So for my next scraps card, I wanted to use my new Cricut Go Canada cartridge and a scrap piece of hockey paper for this card to celebrate his graduation to big boy skates. Everything on this card is made from scraps except for the card base.
The card base is from Recollections Jewel cardstock and measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". The mat measures 5 1/4" x 4" and was a scrap piece of blue that matched the strip of hockey paper. The hockey paper was left over from Denver's 2nd birthday scrapbook pages. I think it was by Karen Foster but don't quote me on that. The strip measures 1 1/2" x 5 1/4". I added a strip of burgendy ribbon to it as well.
All cuts are from the Cricut Go Canada cartridge. This is a new cartridge and I love it. It's a must have for any Canadian scrapbooker!!!! They even have a Tim's cup!!!
The skate is found on page 27 and is cut at 2". I used all layers for the skate. The stick and puck are found on p. 24 and are cut at 3 1/2" and the phrase he shoots he scores is found on p. 25 and is cut at 1 1/2". I also used Inkadinkadoo's Snowflakes A Plenty and my versamark and stamped some snowfloakes on the background of the blue mat. I then added Icicle stickles to the outsides of the snowflake and one in the middle to give it a little shimmer!
Hope you like my take on Canadian winters! We are hockey people!
