Santa's Sleigh

To create Santa's Sleigh, I used the Sleigh Die Cut from Creative Cuts & More, then simply traced it onto a piece of Cosmo Cricket Paper, cut out and adhered the pattern paper to the die cut.

For my image, I stamped the Vintage Santa from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods Plate on Caramel card stock, then used the Sepia Technique to add color. To color his beard, I painted on Rock Candy Stickles with an old H20 Brush, then dabbed on some White Pastels, layered onto a Black Panel cut with Spellbinders Circle Dies, then onto my Sleigh.

The Sleigh holds Pretzel Bark in a Cello Bag, tied with Rope.

Here's the recipe

Pretzel Bark

1 cup chopped pretzels
1/3 cup chopped toasted PLANTERS Pecans
1-1/2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

STIR pretzels and nuts into chocolate; spread onto waxed paper-covered baking sheet.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces
