CC296, Christmas Nutcracker!

Hello, I made this card for today's colour challenge, CC296 poppy, tempting, white! Now I must admit, and maybe you felt the same, but when poppy parade was first released, I really didn't care too much for it! But paired with the right colours, it is beautiful!

So for todays card, I used a new set from Mark's Finest Papers which is available for purchase today, it's called 'Christmas Postage Due'! This is just one of many stamps in the set.

I stamped the nutcracker onto white and coloured with copics, I found copics R27, R17, & R05 were good matches for the poppy parade! I added stickles to the berries and backed it with black. This panel is popped up.

The card base is poppy parade, with a layer of white and poppy parade dp on the bottom. I also found a scrap of white that was already punched with a heart edge so I added it! The top part of the white was embossed with the Crafts-too snowflake EF.

I finished it off with some satin ribbon from Mark's Finest Papers, a little scrap of fibre and a mini Christmas ornament!
