DP: Giant Nutcrackers

I still needed a card for our closest neighbor.  When I saw this image from the Doodle Pantry shop, I knew that this was the one that I planned to use.  It's called Holiday Nutcracker

Aside from being available pre-colored in my favorite colors, the reason that I immediately loved it was because this was the gift that I gave these friends' daughter.  I know, what 6 year old wants gigantic nutcrackers instead of toys?  But she did!  I had the darnedest time *buying* this gift (I went to 4 stores before FINALLY finding them).  I thought that the entire family would be amused by the card.

I'm using the sketch from over at Bugaboo.  I loved it's simplicity and the shape was perfect for this image.


  1. Hi Joanna, this card is perfect for the gift! =) Great thinking. I love this set. All of the nutcrackers are so beautiful. Great job! They will love it!

    Good luck in the Stella Says Sketch challenge! Pia, Bugaboo GDT
