Nutcracker Christmas

I'm not really sure when the Nutcracker soldiers became associated with Christmas - it certainly wasn't when I was a child! But now they are everywhere and are ideal for today's card - for a friend's child to give to his uncle and his husband - not the kind of card readily available in the shops...

I've used striped textured card as the base, some traditional tartan patterned paper for the backing and added a touch of shine with gold mirri card backing. The cute nutcracker men are die cut decoupage - I love them! I've added a simple Christmas greeting created in Publisher,

I'm playing along with the challenges at:

Southern Girls Challenge (Trace) - anything goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge #241 - Christmas/winter sentiment
Holly and Ivy Challenge #61 - anything goes
