The ice skate can be size to fit on a wreath or even made into a picture to display for the winter months. This layered project is easy to make and makes a pretty decoration. You can use white or silver glitter card stock for the top layer, it makes a beautiful layered ice skate.
This is a very easy to make project that has five layers. The use of glitter card stock really brings out the snowflakes to give it that wintery feeling and makes this a beautiful decoration.

Cutting Out the Layered Ice Skate
Unzip the download file.
Then open up Design Space and start a new project.
Click Upload and find where you saved the unzipped version of the downloaded files for this project.
Then go into the SVG Folder and select the SVG Files
Select all and change it to the size you want to cut out
Then click on the Make It button
The prepare screen will appear
Now if everything looks correct on it, click on the continue button
The next screen will be where you will select the type of card stock you are using. If you do not see the material in your material favorites, click on "browse all materials" to find the weight of cardstock that you are using. For example the white Cardstock I used is medium weight, you will need to select "Medium Weight"..
Once you have Design Space set, you are now ready to prepare your mat. I used a brayer when placing the Cardstock on the mat, this helps in making sure that the paper is adhered to the mat and will help in keeping the paper from ripping or moving when it is being cut.
