Sleigh Ride Circles-Nacho Average Sketch Challenge #167

We have an interesting sketch challenge this week over at the Nacho Average challenge site:


Here's my contribution:

Sleigh Ride Thinlits 007I wasn't too sure about this sketch, but once I thought it through, it actually came together pretty easy. 

I used the Sleigh Ride Edgelits to create a fun winter scene out of Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray and Shimmer White card stock.  The top circle is vellum card stock with the snowflake images from Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamped using white Stazon ink. 

I cut the pieces for the sleigh ride scene using the Big Shot and Sleigh Ride Edgelits.  I then built the scene by layering the pieces under my  3 1/2" circle framelit.  Once I got the design how I wanted it, I secured the pieces together using a SNAIL adhesive.  Then, I placed my circle framelit over the scene and ran it through the Big Shot.  The individual pieces were longer than the framelit, but once it was run through the Big Shot, the extra card stock was cut away. 

I then mounted them on a Basic Gray card base which I trimmed down somewhat to accommodate the smaller scene.  The card actually measures 3 3/4" x 3".  Since I didn't have room for any of the longer greetings that come in the coordinating stamp set Jingle All the way, I used the smaller greeting found in Festival of Trees.  I then added the rest of the greeting, plus more snowflakes to the inside of the card.
