Altered Dies #2

Hi Everyone and welcome to altered dies #2. I have altered 2 dies today to make a sleigh. It looks like a lot of us might need a sleigh this week! LOL!

I started with Spellbinders Labels 8 and cut it out using red card stock.

I then used scissors to cut the label in half. This is the body of the sleigh.

I took the Spellbinders Floral Flourish die and cut 2 from silver card stock.

Next I cut off the left swirl on each one to make the runners. I also cut a small strip from the silver card stock to attach to the runners. Here is the finished sleigh!

Here is a close up of the card that shows the sparkle of the glitter. I used Starfire glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. White Applique was used on Woofie's hat and some of the snow.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed how I altered the dies. I hope you have a wonderful day!
