Cut It Up #7: 3D Holiday Projects

Good morning folks!  Can you believe that December is literally right around the corner?  Where did November go.  I can't remember it flying by so quickly....
It's time for another challenge at Cut It Up!  This theme is perfect for this time of year while we are all rushing to get our holiday gifts finished!!!  Why not link it up to Cut It Up for a chance to win this fabulous prize.

This weeks challenge is to create a 3D Holiday project.  It's your choice which holiday (Christmas, New Years, Easter, etc...) but make sure you include a die cut somewhere's on it.  This challenge starts today, November 30th and goes to December 12th at noon EST!

For my 3D project I used 3 cartridges:  Sweet Tooth Boxes, Doodlecharms & Create a Critter 2.
 I cut the box from Sweet Tooth Cricut Cartridge at  1/4" (p.40) and the liner at 6" (p. 64). I inked around all edges with my Studio G Burgundy ink.
 The snowman was cut from Doodlecharms (p.82) at 2".  I added a ribbon scarf and also a cute little Peachy Keen Face from the Winter Faces Assortment Pack.
 The Tree was cut from Create a Critter 2 (p. 65) at 4".  I added some bling and also some yellow glitter glue to the start to give it some sparkle.
 The Santa Bear was cut at 2 3/4" (p. 66) from Create a Critter 2.  I added some Icicle stickles to the white suit.  The sleigh was cut at 3 1/2" (p. 70) and Reindeer (p.70) at 2 1/2" also from Create a Critter 2. I added some red glitter Glue to the reindeer's nose.  I also used some black and white baker's twine to the sleigh and reindeer.
 A little large bling for the doorknob....

Hope you like it!
