Nutcracker Christmas Cards


Happy St. Nicholas Day! Here is a little cultural excursion for you.

A nutcracker is a tool designed to open nuts by cracking their shells. They are made in many styles, often portraying a soldier or a king whose mouth forms the jaws of the nutcracker. Especially in Germany, they are a traditional symbol for Christmas time – and a perfect theme for your Christmas cards!


I chose to use paper in classic red and green, but why not use pink or yellow for a change…?
