Santa's Sleigh





Santa's Sleigh is one of the new dies from Die-Versions this month and I've used him a couple different ways.  For the first card, he's flying off to his next location and was silhouetted by the moon.  Santa is colored with Copic markers and the white portions of his outfit are covered with Snow White flock from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The bag of toys is really a piece of fabric, although it's hard to tell in the photo and Santa's Sleigh is all blinged out with some chunky silver glitter that I've had for a long while.  The trees in the foreground are actually the Tiny Tree from the Die-Versions Halloween release (pretty versatile die) and are covered with Goosebumps Texture Spray.  The background was created with PanPastels.



The second way I used this die was to make a tag.  I embossed the tag with Sizzix's Evergreen embossing folder and then randomly covered it with several Distress Inks.  I spritzed the die cut with Perfect Pearls mists (Perfect Pearl) and added a quick sticker sentiment from Creative Memories (that I've had for a long time).

For lots more inspiration, be sure to visit the Die-Versions blog.
