Have a cracker of a xmas

Today I made a christmas card!  Fortunately I don't have many to make each year and for this year I am a bit pushed for time with all the travelling coming up that I won't really have time at Christmas to make many so being the super organised person I am I'm using my DT posts and Christmas in July Challenge over at The Stamp Spot to make a start on my cards!
Here is my card:
I have made my crackers and I must admit that I chuckled when creating the title as I said it out loud and it is sounded really 'ocker' like!
I have followed the sketch from The Sketchy Challenges, have incorporated hexagons and circles for Top Tip Tuesday, added a little dry embossing for Kaboodle Doodles and have no ribbon, cotton or twine for the 'no spoolin' challenge over at Southern Girls.
materials used - Bazzill blossom, vanilla and patina cardstock; Crate Paper 'sleigh ride' papers; Paper Smooches 'alphadot' stamps; Versa color black ink; Kaisercraft aquamarine rhinestones; Adorn it Carolee Creations alphabet stickers; Craft Concepts hexagon embossing folder; circle cutters; washi tape.
Thanks for looking.
