The Book of Nutcrackers

Hey Y'all!!!  Wow!  Scrappy Tails Crafts has the coolest new spinner cards, book pop-up and music notes dies.  They go together to make the cutest cards.  The books fold flat for mailing.  The book has a magnetic closure.  How fun!  Check them out!!  All the details for making this card yourself are below (including links).



I am absolutely obsessed with the ‘A7 Book Pop Up‘ die set and decided to pair it with the new Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Slimline Nutcracker Spinner Add-On.  The beautiful Nutcracker was pieced together from several colors of Stampin' UP's card stock.  ‘Polished Pink‘, ‘Highland Heather‘, ‘Balmy Blue' and an old piece of textured silver paper that I love.  Finished him off with some pearls for decoration.



I cut the base, bottom and side accordions from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Highland Heather‘ card stock.  I used the ‘A7 Music Note Cover Plate Metal‘ die to make a border on the front cover from Stampin' UP!'s ‘Polished Pink‘ card stock.  The background is from that same old piece of textured silver paper.  I cut out several instruments using the same card stock colors and glued them on top of the border.



The inside of the box features a background of the same textured silver paper, along with more instruments and musical notes cut out from Stampin' UP's card stock.  ‘Polished Pink‘, ‘Highland Heather‘, ‘Balmy Blue' . Randomly glued them to the background and inside the folds on the sides.


The sentiment is from Scrappy Tails Crafts ‘Nutcracker Ballet 6 x 8‘ stamp set with a matching die set.  It's stamped on card stock cut using one of the dies from the ‘A7 Book Pop Up‘ die set.  Finished the book off with a more textured silver paper, a beautiful pink note and a magnetic enclosure.


The nutcracker sits under the holiday tree, a guardian of childhood stories.  Feed him walnuts and he will crack open a tale…
