2 Sketches 4 You - #39 - Snow Wonderful Sleigh ride :)

Good Morning Everyone :)

Today over at 2 Sketches 4 You, our lovely Laura has created this amazing sketch#39 for us to play with!! Love it - there are sooo many possibilities with this sketch! Our sponsor this week is Creative Cuts and More which has over a ton of different kinds of die cuts, alterables, embellishments, cardstock etc. in their store! The die cuts are such a great way to create something that is outside the box and today's project is definitely outside the box... its more like a ... sleigh :) I used the Sleigh die cut (this die cut measures: 6-1/4” long (4-1/4" long without runners) x 4" high x 1-1/4” deep and comes in a ton of colors that you can choose from). This is such a great little die cut to fill with things like pinecones, peppermints or candy (which I chose to do - which also by the way is mostly gone after the photoshoot!!! lol!!).

Here is my take on Laura's lovely sketch with my "snowwonderful" sleigh die cut - the elements of the sketch are mostly in there - I love the fact that we can start with the sketch and then let our imagination take us where it wants to go :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Paper Studio (Holiday Series)
Ink: Rosebud from Memento
Accessories: Sleigh die cut from Creative Cuts and More, buttons from Whirligig, dimensionals, red tacky tape, ribbon from Taylored Expressions, liquid pearls (opal), circle punches and candy

Before I folded the die cut, I traced around the shape on some yummy DP and then I folded the die cut together and then adhered tacky tape and some Zip Dry for Extra Measure. I embellished the traced and cut out shape with liquid pearls (opal for snow) and buttons and ribbon :). I stamped, copic colored and cut out this sweet little snowman from Verve and stamped the sentiment "snow wonderful" directly on the paper. I attached the little stick with the present on it with some more of the red tacky tape and added some crystal stickles to the little snowman's scarf :)

I had a ton of fun playing around with this sweet die cut and loved the sketch for this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You! A huge thank you to Creative Cuts and More for being our sponsor this week and also for the yummy prize that they are giving away to one lucky 2S4U participant! Check out all the details and all of the sketch samples from the wonderful Design Team over at 2 Sketches $ You and then play along too!!!

Thanks so much for coming over today!
Big hugs!
