Sleigh Bells Ring

Hi guys, been playing with a new Dutch Doobadoo Sleigh  mask 470.713.506 which was in this months DT kit, it's fab and would be great with  gold coin toffee's in too, I've made mine as a table decoration,
I used pearlesent card to make my sleigh for a little natural shimmer, after all Santa is magical lol,
The printed paper is by Maga Design and the template includes the lines for the inner design too,
For the bottom of the sleigh i used snow tex for texture and does snow effects brilliantly,
I made the parcels out of a little plywood which is nice and light but gave depth to the presents, I used some more Maga papers for these and finished them off with some twine,
Santa by Magnolia is coloured with my distress markers and i gave his fur a bit of glitter treatment to shine and sparkle too, the laces and his belt have a silver metalic pen on them, after colouring i fussy cut him out and slightly shaped him then layered him on with 3D glue,
The holly die was coloured with Silks and this shines in real life too, I added a few crystal gems for a hint of bling on the sleigh too,
The front of the sleigh has glitter on the top, a pearl string underneath that and a couple of silver bells and a charm which says belive on, the gorgeous flowers are of course by Sweet lilac and i used some letter stickers I had in my stash for the Ho Ho Ho,
The back is a little plainer but I couldn't resist using this wooden piece I bought in a pack last year, some more of the flowers, a doo hickey die and yet more gems for bling, the top has glitter added and the bottom has the Snow Tex added again,
