Santa's Workshop Tabletop Shadowbox

Welcome to the North Pole.  
Santa is workingovertime with elves, the reindeer, and even Mrs. Claus getting ready forChristmas deliveries.  Brought to you by the amazing Large Die of the Month Club by Spellbinders, with special appearances by Santa's Reindeer -Special Add-On Set and accented using a variety of chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments and 3D Buttons from Buttons Galore and More. 


This month the creativity and festivity is on overdrive due the adorable die set that is a "must have".  This November's Large Die of the Month includes the dies to make Santa and elves (and Mrs. Claus too). 

You can grab the coordinating reindeer "add on" to complete the set.   See how adorable the reindeer is? I added a button nose to transform the reindeer into Rudolph - the ever important main Rein"dude".
Mrs. Claus - Super Easy Adaptation
Santa is notcomplete without his lovely doting companion, Mrs. Claus.  I created MrsClaus with a simple adaptation by using Santa's beard as her hair. Ialso gave her a lace apron and secured the lace to the back of thebody.
The Workshop was created using a variety of chipboard from Creative Embellishments starting with the Creative Embellishments - House Vignette - House Shadowbox.  From there, I covered with paper from Prima, and added the following chipboard accents:

You can see the roof Slate Shingles in the image below.  I painted them white and topped them with Unicorn Paste for a snowy glistening finish.
Chipboard EmbellishmentsThe Christmas tree in the background is Creative Embellishments - Mesh Tree , painted with green acrylic paint, and decorated with beads, sequins and buttons from Buttons Galore -Festive Traditions -Embellishment Bottles.


The chipboard North Pole Christmas Sign was wiped using a sponge and wash of white acrylic paint and water.  I didn't want to paint over the North Pole wording. 

Santa's chipboard sleigh was also painted with acrylic paint.

The Roof Ridge Top Chipboard was critical on this project to securing the chipboard sign and sleigh to the house. The chipboard is scored and acts like a hinge, thus helping to provide more support to the chipboard pieces when gluing to the house.The adorable finishing touches on Santa's North Pole Workshop are sweet 3D buttons from Buttons Galore and More.
