Holiday season

Hello to all!

Happy December!

I am inspired by a very talented Designer Jodi Collins and CASEing her card. And it was the layout of the card that really appealed to me!

Here is my interpretation of this. Instead, of stamped flowers, I used a Nutcracker with Christmas trees. And I have opted for the traditional colors for my Christmas Holiday card.

I really enjoyed coloring this cute guy, perfect for coloring with so much space.

The winter Christmas tree are from white sheet and I watercolored them using ZIG.

On a red strip, I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it.

I have kept the design simple and added striped pattern paper to both sides of the centre panel.
I adhered to the focal panel with falling snow PP in a pastel brown color. Then placed my Nutcracker image with decorative trees.

I dazzled it with some rhinestones. Hope you enjoyed it.
Thanks for joining me today!
Happy crafting!
