Festive Friday's Theme Challenge

Festive Friday continues to help us with our Christmas cards!
This challenge is to create a project for a child.
There are 10 grandchildren in our family, and grandma makes a card for each one.
At Christmas time, when he was little, Garrett would help me set out the nutcracker collection.
He loved this special task, and I loved seeing his face as we unwrapped each one to set them in their 
special place. 
This card will be his!
A couple of fun Christmas papers from Cosmo Cricket with 3 windows cut from 2 sizes of 
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels 28.
Inside the card the 3 stamped nutcrackers from Waltzingmouse's Nutcracker Sweet stamp set.
PTI Rustic White Cardstock
The 2 wreaths at the top were first die cut with PTI's largest Button Up 2, stamped with Pure Poppy then New Leaf. Then I die cut the centers again with the smallest blossom die from 
Polka Dot Parade #2.
Heart is from PTI's Heart-2-Heart #11 stamped with the heart from WM Nutcracker.
Mistletoe and Holly branch, die cut in New Leaf (PTI).
My sweet Garrett is 10 now, possibly too old to help grandma set out the nutcrackers, 
we'll see. 
The child's Christmas challenge runs for 2 weeks.
