Holly Jolly Nutcracker

It's the first of December and here's my first new Christmas card I created this year.  My son's favorite color is orange.   That prompted me to use orange for this card.   I tell ya, it was hard to find any matching Christmas designer paper. 

Stamps: Nutcracker is by Recollections, Greeting is by Stampin Up (Christmas Punch)
Paper: K&Company (Let it Snow), SU Cardstock, misc cardstock
Ink/Coloring: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Tim Holz Distress Ink, Copic markers for coloring
Accessories: Misc. Ribbon
Tools: Corner rounder, Stampin Up (Curly Label Punch)

Technique Notes: 
The orange shadow layer on the punched greeting is simply the same label punch turned 90 degrees. 


  1. This card is AWESOME!! It is playful, beautifully colored, and aren't Nutcrackers German??? So it speaks to your heritage too!!! LOL - I love it! As I always do your work!

  2. Amy, thank you for the kind words. I miss hanging out with you. Wish we lived closer these days.
