A Sparkly Season Petite Pairs Christmas Card

Okay, I packaged up the "Embellished Ornaments" set and am ready to return that one to my sister.  Unless someone on the net comes up with one I just HAVE to make. 

I LOVE Nutcrackers!!!  I think they are fascinating and fun. It's a nutcracker and a toy in one!!! LOL  We have a few of them we set out at Christmas time.  Though this year at Michael's I did see some Halloween ones.  I did not purchase any.  I don't decorate the inside of the house much for Halloween.  Anyway, I Googled "nutcrackers" so I could see the fun colors.  I found some fun colors that I thought would work with the "Merry Moments" decorative paper.  All but the Pacific Point marker works well. And there's nothing I can do about it, what's done is done!!! Just pretend  it works, okay?  LOL

To make this card I used a folded half sheet of Mossy Meadow card stock.  Then I added two decorative papers from the "Merry Moments" decorative paper packs.  I cut them 4" x 5-1/4" and then I cut them from tip to tip and taped two pieces onto the top of the card stock.

Next I colored in the Nutcracker and all the other images.  I punched out them using a 2" circle punch.  The layer behind it is a 2-3/8" piece of Mossy Meadow.  This piece was set in place using Dimensionals.  The words are from the "Petite Pairs" set an were punched out with the 1-1/4" circle punch.  Then I punched a Mossy Meadow scalloped circle and layered behind the words.  I set that piece in place using Dimensionals as well.

I did have fun making this card.  And I like how cheery it is!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
