Day 24, Letter "U" - Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas

     I had to do a bit of thinking for the "U" prompt at the 30 Days of Christmas at Beccy's Place.  I thought about all the "Under the tree, mistletoe, starry sky,...etc." but decided to reflect something from the famous Nutcracker Ballet and use Uniform worn by the Nutcracker.  I also made a U-fold card.  You can find a tutorial for them on Beccy's blog.

Here's another photo taken at an angle which will let you see the inside side panels a bit better.

It is getting challenging thinking of things for this end of the alphabet! Your U-fold card is gorgeous with the Nutcracker ballet scenes. They are a great background for Beccy's Nutcracker image.

What a wonderful idea for U. I never would have thought of it. Love your card!

Beccy said...

As soon as I saw your card in the challenge gallery I thought of the Nutcracker Suite NC, you've done a wonderful job creating a scene from the ballet. The fold looks fabulous and you were very clever with your choice of papers... especially the wood grain for the stage. Love it!

What a FUN creation, Connie! Having the scenes from various portions of the ballet is a fantastic design idea, and a really great use of Beccy's Nutcracker! Your fancy fold card really does make for a lovely holiday home decor piece! hugs, de
