Neat and Tangled Release Week: Day One

This is post 1 of 2 for HERE for the Hero Arts November My Monthly Hero!

Hello and Welcome to Day One of the Neat & Tangled 
November Release!

Today up on the Neat & Tangled blog is Santa's Ride/Dies + Merry Little Christmas/Dies.  

I'm featuring the New Santa's Ride + Nice & Neat Dies on my blog:

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  stamps:  neat & tangled santa's ride  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  neat & tangled santa's ride nice & neat dies, neat & tangled raspberry red/crystal clear & shamrock sequins, mama elephant peek a frame dies

I've been loving seeing all the large shaker cards out there in the crafty world...I'm slow to join in because it takes me awhile to design shaker cards.  Well, these larger scale ones are much easier!  My background is filled with repetitive stamping  using the santa and the believe sentiment.  I knew that I wasn't going to color them because I think that it makes the shaker part more fun/dramatic.  I wanted to include that cute reindeer and sleight so I colored and die cut them out and placed them on the top.  I like how it looks like the sequins are flowing out of the sleigh!

Check out my sequin choices:

raspberry red
raspberry red satin sequins

crystal clear
crystal clear sequins

shamrock satin
