52 Christmas Card Throwdown wants a sled (sledge) on our cards this week.  Christmas Kickstart Challenge theme is "You Sleigh Me" so will enter my card there also.  I don't own any sled/sleigh stamps or dies, but have made tags in the past using a tag die, woodgrain paper and hand cutting the runners.


I made a mini slimline card (3.5x6) with kraft cs and added layers - the top layer embossed with a snow fall ef.  Designed my sled with the woodgrain paper on a kraft tag. I used some walnut DI to give the wood some definition.  Die cut the holly leaves and added to the twiggy wreath.  The sentiment was clear embossed - red Nuvo drops and a twine bow finished my card.

Thanks for stopping by - always enjoy reading your kind comments.
