Santa's Sleigh filled with Pretzel Bark


Looking for those quick and easy gifts to create for the Holiday Hostess, Mail Person, UPS Guy, or just to have on hand? Look no further! To create Santa's Sleigh, I used the Sleigh Die Cut from Creative Cuts & More, then simply traced it onto a piece of Cosmo Cricket Paper, cut out and adhered the pattern paper to the die cut.

For my image, I stamped the Vintage Santa from the Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods Plate on Caramel card stock, then used the Sepia Technique to add color. To color his beard, I painted on Rock Candy Stickles with an old H20 Brush, then dabbed on some White Pastels, layed onto a Black Panel cut with Spellbinders Circle Dies, then onto my Sleigh.

The Sleigh holds Pretzel Bark in a Cello Bag, tied with Rope.

Here's the recipe

Pretzel Bark
1 cup chopped pretzels
1/3 cup chopped toasted PLANTERS Pecans
1-1/2 pkg. (8 squares each) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, melted

STIR pretzels and nuts into chocolate; spread onto waxed paper-covered baking sheet.

REFRIGERATE 1 hour or until firm. Break into pieces


Project Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Snowy Woods
Ink - Black, Pastels, Caramel, Chocolate Chip
Card Stock - Sleigh Die, Cosmo Cricket, Caramel, Black
Other - Ink Blending Tool, Stickles, Big Shot, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Sticky Strip

Cool trick with the stickles in the beard. I want to make that candy, too. I think with a treat that yummy, it doesn't even need a sleigh.
