I love this set. These nutcrackers are awesome!
Here is my first card.
I did a pop cut out card using the arch shape. I stamped out one nutcracker on one side and the other nutcracker on the opposite side.  This is a very fun card with the spinning nutcrackers.

I still wanted to play with set some more so I made another card.
For this card I made a Flip Fold Card. This is the current challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club. You can find the tutorial HERE.

Here is the card opened up. I did a mini word search inside. I think it will be a great card for my little nephew. He loves word searches. So he will have to find all the "joy" words.
