Mr. Nutcracker

I'm so excited to share this new holiday creation that I made.
Isn't he just the cutest?

I'm up on the Imaginisce blog today sharing this Nutcracker that I created using THIS cut file from SVG Cuts and the new christmas collection, Colors of Christmas from Imaginisce.

He stands approx. 12" high and is about 3 1/2" wide.

I used some white Core'dinations cardstock and embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder (for the beard).
I also some large clear rhinestones (part of the Colors of Christmas collection) on his chest.

I tied some twine (The Twinery) around the top edge of his boots and some May Arts ribbon around the bottom portion of the stand.

 For the boots and hat I used Core'dinations Core Couture in white ("White Gloves").

I used the i-rock tool to adhere some white & turquoise colored Glam Rocks on his hat and some small black ones for his eyes.

I also used some Core'dinations Glitter Silk cardstock (red) for some sparkle and added texture.
It was super easy to put together and I just love how it turned out.

Supplies used: Imaginisce (Colors of Christmas: patterned papers, rhinestones, glam rocks (white, black & turquoise glimmer), i-rock tool, i-bond tool); Core'dinations Colorcore Cardstock; Silhouette Cameo; SVG cut file, Xyron (1.5" and 2" Create-a-Sticker machine; Sookwang double sided tape

Thanks for stopping by.
