Exploring Cricut - Let's Take a Sleigh Ride...

Or you could use a sled... This week's challenge at Exploring Cricut is all about the wind in your hair and preferably no trees in your path!

And here's my project for the week...

I decided to make a tag this week. And with monogramming being all the rage right now, I decided to make some monogrammed tags for Christmas. This one belongs to our grand-daughter Gloria. Since her papa is a BIG University of Kentucky fan I went with a Big Blue theme.

The cuts are from Winter Woodland. And the specifics...

Sleigh & Shadow - White Card Stock - 4 inches (pg. 53) - 1 piece each
Sleigh top - Blue - 4 inches (pg. 53)- embossed with Cuttlebug Folder Snowflakes - 1 piece
Sleigh Trim - Silver - 4 inches (pg. 53) - 2 pieces
Holly - Red & Green - 4 inches (pg. 53) - 1 piece green holly, 2 pieces red berries
Shadow G - Silver - 2 1/2 inches (pg. 56) - 1 piece
Letter G - Blue - 2 1/2 inches (pg. 56) - 1 piece

I cut all of my pieces. I glued the shadow and white sleigh base together. I ran the top of my sleigh (the blue piece) through the Cuttlebug using my Snowflakes folder. I stamped the back of the tag with one of my favorite scriptures (you could also put a Christmas sentiment here) and then glued it to the white base. I glued one silver trim layer directly to my sleigh and then used dimensional foam to add the second silver layer. I then applied 1 of the red pieces to the green holly. I then placed this on the corner of the sleigh with dimensional foam. I placed another tiny piece of foam on the 2nd red berry piece and applied it over the first. I glued the blue letter G on the silver base and adhered the entire unit on the sleigh with 2 pieces of dimensional foam layered on top of each other. This made it really stand out!

Here's the back... I used a recent release from Our Daily Bread Designs called The Word of God. Thanks so much for stopping in and I will see you next time!
