A Christmas Sleigh


Just before Christmas last year I saw this gorgeous pattern for a cardstock sleigh from Sandra's Scrapshop but I held off as it was too late and I knew I would forget I had it in my looooooong to do list! Since Christmas is sneaking up on us already this year I thought it was time to buy it and have a play. 

Sandra is very clever and has designed this so it can fold flat for posting - an option I didn't use this time as I'm planning on filling it with a gift and giving it away. This pattern available as both a pdf to print and cut or - for lazy people like me - in cut files to be used with an electronic cutter. This was cut using my Cameo and my gorgeous little Make it Crafty Elf Floppy came out to help me decorate it - he doesn't know it yet but I'll be needing his help later to load the sleigh with goodies too!!!
I've used a Memory Box die to cut the snowflake flourish out and added some Make it Crafty chipboard snowflakes too. A few flowers, leaves, snow and sparkle and it was done!

Make it Crafty - 
Copics Used - Skin (E21, E11, E000) plus B99, B97, B95, B93, B91, B05, E47, E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, E08, T2, T0, YR14, Y13, white gel pen

EDIT - I was asked what the brown cardstock is and since I can't find any contact info for the lady who asked I'll pop it here in case she pops back - I used a brand called Cut Mates to cut out the sleigh as it's designed for electronic cutters. But I have punched the holly leaves out of Stampin' Up cardstock and this colour (which is an almost perfect match to the cut mates) - is called Soft Suede.
