Can you believe it? There are only 17 sleeps until Christmas! Eek! This holiday season is going by so fast. Today’s share is the second of four from my November Card Class. When I came across Frenchie Martin’s Punch Art Sled I thought it was just adorable. I also thought it was a fun way to keep the holiday season light and full of flurries. [giggle] I modified Frenchie’s by using the gobs of Wood Textured Designer Series Paper I have in my “stash”. Okay let’s be honest…..my DSP hoard.
BASE: The Soft Sky base is topped with Whisper White pieces torn on an angle and layered to create a sloped look that the sled could slide down. First, to add some sparkle the torn pieces are spritzed with Wink of Stella. Yes, Wink of Stella. I opened the tube and poured it into a Stampin’ Spritzer, then spritzed onto the “slopes”. Then they were layered onto the the Soft Sky base with the torn edges curled slightly. This creates a super sparkly look in real life. [sparkle, baby!]
SLED: The Sled is made using 1/4″ strips of Silver Foil, then topped with an Everyday Label Punch body and finally a Duet Banner Punch Handle using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. The curved handle gives an old timey look. This is achieved by punching the Duet Banner piece, then cutting it in half and finally trimming the ends straight. 1/8″ silver ribbon creates the steering rein and is then attached with glue dots. [Twine would be a great choice as well.]
SENTIMENT: After scouring my holiday stamp sets this sentiment from Flurry of Wishes jumped out at me. It fit the snow theme perfectly. Then by embossing with White Emboss Powder you get another layer of shine. Woohoo!
