Use a die

Good morning and happy
We have a new challenge over at the Digi Choosday blog. As always for you it is anything goes, but the design team have the challenge of  "use a die" so here is my make. Beware there are lots and lots of photos, so you may need a cuppa before you look at them all.
This started out as a plain MDF kit I got at Crafting Live last year.

I just love this so much. I really didn't want to put it away after Christmas.
I used some papers from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection. I added some modelling paste and gesso around the edges and in random places to look a little bit like snow. I then used a bronze gilding wax around the edges. So I got really, really messy making this, which I just love! I cut all the die cuts out with Centura Pearl card. I bought some really cheap Christmas decorations from poundstretcher and pulled them all apart to add bits here and there. I also added some polystyrene snowballs. I even made the candle ring in the centre of the sleigh. I glittered up some pine cones, used some hessian/burlap type ribbon and some die cuts, and attached them all to a wired fern sprig.  On the arrangement I made for the side of the sleigh I also used some of that silver fine tinsel that you hang from Christmas trees. The dies I used are all from Polkadoodles and they are: Super Sprigs, the flower from the Bubbleicious Frames set, and the foliage die from the Birdhouse Doublet die set. Check out all the rest of the dies from Polkadoodles HERE.
