Ice Skate Applique Motif
This week I have been seriously getting started with Christmas cards. Although I have a lot of Stampin Up supplies, they do not have an ice skate. So I decided to use Electric Quilt 8 to make my own ice skate.
The design does take a bit of time to draw. The original video was around 35 minutes --but since nobody has time to watch a long video this month, I shortened it a lot (to around 12 minutes). When new points are presented, I talk through the mechanics -- but then speed up the video to demonstrate the execution.
Here are the images used in the video. They may be downloaded and used for tracing your own ice skate.

Using the Ice Skate Design in Christmas Cards
I thought I would give you a sneak peak on how I chose to use the ice skate. I cut them out using my Cricket Maker -- and created a few designs using other card making supplies I had on hand.
I am planning to make about a dozen cards for friends in my ice skating community. Our Christmas party is next week -- so I best get busy.
I will talk more about how I transferred the design and used it in Cricut Design Space next week.
I am also thinking that the skate could be used in a Christmas tree ornament as well. And could definitely be part of a quilt. What do you think?
I look forward to seeing your ice skate. Feel free to share pictures in the Learning EQ Facebook group.
