Upright Nutcracker Soldiers in their Uniforms

      I know you are all thinking that I copied Beccy's idea for the Letter "U" prompt in this year's 30 Days of Christmas but this quick and easy card was made before she posted her Nutcracker card.  I acknowledge that I chose them mostly because of their Uniforms but then realized I could add Upright because they were standing so straight and tall.

     The image is one of Beccy's pre-colored images, trimmed into a rectangle, and cut with a Fiskar's corner punch.  The glittery red stripe was made with scraps and the sentiment is hand-trimmed on the corners.  The red CS front was embossed with my 'Linen' EF.

Lovely card NanaConnie. I like that you added a flipped image so that the Nutcrackers have each other for company.

There aren't too many "U" words that are suitable for holiday cards NC, so I don't think you and I will be the only ones who choose "uniform"... it's a tough one. Love the shaped corners you added to the image panel, they almost reflect the tops of the nutcrackers hats. The glitter strip is fabulous and adds the perfect amount of sparkle. Love it!
Cheers,
Beccy
