Sleigh Rides

Hello friends!  I've been wanting to make a sleigh and when I saw the Nutcracker Sweet Collection by Graphic 45, I knew it would be perfect for my design.  I made a pattern and cut the medium weight chipboard with a craft knife.  I cut the Nutcracker Sweet papers and used my craft knife to cut close to the chipboard.
I've added some embossed Chipboard, Tim Holtz labels and Rosette die, Graphic 45 Metal Brads and Graphic 45 packaging on the mini.
Worldwin ColorMates were used on the inside of the sleigh.
Close up's.
Label close up, embossed with WOW! Gold embossing powder.
Also used are Purple and Red Embossing Powder.

If you save the packaging with the acetate, it makes for a great little shaker.  I used tiny Jingle Bells inside the acetate for the cover of my mini.
Cover with the Jingle Bell Shaker
Tim Holtz Gears and 7 gypsies Metal corners.

Embossing close up and Graphic 45 Metal Clothespin.
The rest of the pages.
Really Reasonable Ribbon Seam Binding.
Snowflake die is Spellbinder's and I've cut them out of a white foam sheet and applied glitter.  The scalloped top is an Accucut die.
Metal Corners are 7 Gypsies
The fence die cut is Heartfelt Creations.
