Sleigh Ride


     Hello my crafty friend, ty so much for stopping by to check out what I have been up to. I wanted to enter a challenge over at The Outlawz where the criteria was Shapes and Snowflakes...I had so many ideas flying around in my head I had to sit just sit down and start working on one. The challenge was to make a shaped card and have a snowflakes/flakes somewhere on your card.I finally decided to go with a sleigh from one of the Christmas cricut carts (same name). It has a lovely design and can be left plain or dressed up.
    I used my gypsy to design the card base by welding two "blackout" sleigh images together, one of them backwards of course. I also welded on oval into the sleigh so I would have an area to glue in presents and allow more room on the inside for a sentiment and signature.  I then cut a single sleigh out twice. One with the oval one without. The one without was used to trace an outline of the opening so I would know where to glue the items going inside. The other one I inked the runners up and heat embossed them in silver. I cut off the sleigh body. I cut the sleigh again in red this time and cut off the runner. I ran the white base without the oval  and the red body part through the xyron and glittered. I then put $ store stickers on cs, cut out and glued in place. Then I glued all the pieces together and added snow writer to the white designer cut on the top section of the sleigh. Added the sentiment from my sticker stash. 
Challenges
      When I finished this card I was soooo happy with how it turned out that I really want to make more. I think this is by far my favourite Christmas card I ever made, it was my black and white one for like 3 or 4 yrs now, but I believe this one has kicked it to the side. If you like my card please leave me a comment and I will pop by your blog and take a boo around yours tooo :) Thank you so much for visiting me today and I hope your day is scrappy1
