Spellbinders November Large Die of the Month

Hi all!  I'm a little late posting this.  I was hoping to get this up sooner, but this weekend was crazy busy.  Isn't this month's Large Die of the Month Kit from Spellbinders so much fun?

You can use this die to create multiple characters - Santa, a girl and boy elf, I've also seen someone create Mrs. Claus.  There's also an add on that allows you to create a reindeer.

What I really love about these dies is that they are interactive.  The body can serve as a stand if you wanted to use these for place settings, or, as I've done, as a tag where the message is hidden.

For the Santa, I kept things simple, cutting each of the pieces from cardstock.  This is a great way to use up some of your smaller scrap pieces of paper.  I added some color to his cheeks with a my Copics and some gel pen accents.

For the elf, I use some blending brushes to add some subtle inking to the pieces for a little depth.  I used the brushes to add color to his cheeks too, and finished things off with some more gel pen accents.

This really is the cutest kit!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
