Oh my ... with a heat index in Central Illinois today of near 100 degrees, it's going to be a little difficult to think about Christmas but then again ... maybe this is the best way to cool off on a hot, hot day!
As you can see, the set actually has two images ... a santa and a nutcracker. The mustache for both coordinates with the Mustache Framelit Die. I think both these images will be adorable for gift tags, cards, scrapbooks ... just about everything!
For my card today, I actually mounted the nutcracker on a Gold Foil Tag and then attached it to a card. I loved highlighting the trim accents on the nutcracker with Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker which coordinates perfectly wih the Gold Foil Cardstock. Add some gold ribbon, a few Basic Rhinestones and a little sparkle on the mustache with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and you have a Nutcracker Soldier fit for a queen!
I colored in the Nutcracker with Blendabilities;
and I created the "candy cane" border with the Chevron Border Punch!
Cool, eh? See, I knew this card would help us feel a little cooler on a hot day! Okay, I'm off now to make some snow in the Ninja ... brrrrr!!!
