I colored all of the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, then I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out! I think the mice are just soooo sweet and the Nutcracker is one of my favorite things about the holiday season!

next, I die cut out the background with both the Slimline Frames & Portholes and Slimline Frames & Windows die sets! I used the squares and ink blended them with Evergreen Bough, Cracked Pistachio and a tiny bit of Mermaid Lagoon to darken the top in Distress Oxide Inks!
then I attached them evenly across the scalloped panel, and then used the Snowfall Stencil and some glittery embossing paste to add to the magic and whimsy!

then I placed the Music Stencil on my card base and used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to add some subtle texture to the background.

then I heat embossed the sentiment in black onto vellum and fussy cut out around it.
