Nutty or Nice?

Well... I've got another Christmas card to share today. I used the new set, Santa Stache. It is one of those sets that made me laugh, and absolutely had to have as I love humourous cards! The sentiment nutty or nice just cracks me up. I'd say it's okay to be both!!! To make my card I used a Whisper White card base, with Basic Black and Old Olive layers. Old Olive is embossed with the Large Polka Dots. I cut a 1-1/2" Strip of Confetti Celebration Designer series paper to add a pop of pattern to my background. I added strips of Basic Black and Gold Glimmer for more interest to the background. 
The white layer is actually the Project Life Grid Cards - I just love these cards! I punched the grid card with the spiral border punch. I stamped my nutcracker, and coloured him with Blendabilities and fussy cut him out. I diecut the muscache in basic black and popped it up on some dimensionals. Lastly for the sentiment - since I wanted to use the smallest word bubble framelit, I had to use my Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker for first 'nutty', then the 'or nice?' to have it fit! The Merry Christmas is from the hostess promo on right now, until October 31 called 'Good greetings'... such a fab set!
