Cracking Christmas

This is my last design team post for So Suzy Stamps and I thought I'd go out with a bang!!!
Well I would if the Christmas Cracker I have made was real!!! For those of you that don't know Crackers are a Christmas table decoration that you pull with another person - they have a strip inside that make a bang. They usually contain a little treat, a party hat and a joke.
As the Holiday season is almost upon us and here is Michigan it is starting to look like Christmas - yes the snow is back - I'd thought I would bow out with a Christmas card
I made this Cracker card using a cutting file for my Silhouette Cameo I then decorated it with silver edging stickers and the So Suzy Snow Flake Trio stamp embossed with wow powders.
As you can see the cracker has already been pulled and the treat inside is......
The Vintage Stocking image. I have colored this using my Spectrum Aqua pens before mounting it onto silver mirror card and adhering it to the center of the open cracker.
Inside the card I added my sentiment
Another fab Suzy stamp....... Stockings were hung again matted with silver mirror.
Well that's all from me here at So Suzy - I hope I have given you a little inspiration with my designs during my time on the team - Thank you for taking the time to read all my posts.
