Winnie & Walter Nutcracker

Hello Folks! It's the last day of the Winnie & Walter previews for their latest release, and it's a doozy! Today we have the unveiling of my favorite Yetitide Greetings set (which you saw "sneaks" of a couple days ago) and the Nutcracker Kisses set, both designed by the lovely and talented Evelin T Designs.

Here we have the Mouse King standing in front of Clara's tree, offering holiday greetings. Or perhaps somewhat of a veiled threat against the nutcracker?!? Either way, I just love that sentiment! Don't think I've heard that one before.

To color this set of cards I used a very dry brush with the Altenew watercolors to give it a "children's illustrated book" feel. It also worked out having the brush strokes visible for the Mouse King's fur. The black cardstock is cut with the long edge of the Tilda cutaway. And the scallops stenciled in the background is from an older creative screening called Madison. I picked that pattern because it always reminds me of wallpaper, appropriate for being in Clara's living room.

Here's another humorous sentiment which I was dying to use. So I lined up the nutty guy and the nice girl over their respective words.

The panel is cut from the smaller Tilda cutaway, and is just the perfect size for occasions like this when you want to feature something smaller on your card.

Love, love the Peppermint Zone cutaway for the background. Not only is it striking, and just the right amount of pizzazz, but it also only took a few seconds to make. I call that a win! The black bottom is cut again with the longer side of the Tilda die.

  1. Another great job of coloring, Kelly. I must say I miss the Nutcracker and my granddaughter dancing in it now that she is in college.
