Nutcracker Prince

Good morning,
Today we have a new challenge over at ……..
It’s another in our ‘Choose Your Own Challenge’ series. These are enormous fun and really give you the opportunity to stretch yourself creatively.
For my project I used two beautiful stamps from Aurora Wings
I chose to make a shaped card ( book), Christmas and gold/ metal.


with a gift

I love these cards because there is room for a little gift inside, in this one I have popped in two nutcracker tree ornaments.
The images are coloured with Promarkers.
The paper is from the Michelle Roos collection Dear Santa
The lace, gold corners and ribbon are from my stash
The tree was cut using a tattered lace die and the snowflakes were made using a Joy snowflake die. I added semi-transparent glitter to the die cuts.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges….
