Here Comes Santa!!!

Good morning everyone. Today I have a 3-D project to show you. I love to make 3-D projects, especially for Christmas. I don't know what I am going to make after Christmas is over. I thought of this after a trip to Michael's on Saturday. I saw a Sizzix sleigh die and thought "I can do that with my Cricut". So when I got home, I got to work.

I also found out about a cool blog called Just Buggin' that has Cricut challenges so I decided to enter my Santa & Sleigh. The challenge (Challenge # 11) is to create something using an animal Cricut cartridge. I think my "Rudolph" fits in to an animal.

All of the parts (sleigh, reindeer, Santa) are from the Cricut Paper Dolls Dressup cartridge. All of the presents are cut using the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More cartridge. The snowflakes on the sides are from the Accent Essentials cartridge.

I decided that the side of the sleigh needed a little something more so that was when I grabbed my JustRite Stamps and spelled out "North Pole" using my 50 point Culz Font. I stamped it onto white cardstock and then diecut it using the Spellbinders Labels Six.
For stability, I adhered my reindeer & sleigh onto pieces of chipboard and then covered the chipboard with pillow stuffing. It looks like Santa is gliding through a field of snow.
I am really happy with the way this turned out. I guess it was worth the hair-pulling late night hours. It will look really cute on my Christmas Table.
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. I really appreciate it.
