A different type of glittered gold paper makes for an entirely different nutcracker Christmas card.
The image is a Tattered Lace Nutcracker die cut from a glittered gold paper of unknown origin layered on Recollections Vanilla. The image panel is affixed to a piece of Ranger Alcohol inked glossy paper and Paper Accents mirrored gold. The sentiment is Fiskars Vintage Christmas stamped in Versafine Onyx Black on Recollections Vanilla.
This is a another card that has sat on my desk for a week while I decided where to take it. I could have used embellishments and made this a sentiment-less card but it would have been too much like yesterday's card. I could have made this a French card. In the end, I decided to go English because I love this vintage sentiment against the more 'modern' glittered, smooshed and mirrored papers. This die cut is pretty large for these smaller card bases so it can be a challenge to find a place for a sentiment that isn't vertical. I this case, I liked the oval shape of the sentiment and it overlaps the nutcracker's boot, just a titch.
I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
