Not a card

I love messing about with templates and this was no exception!
I don't actually remember where I looked for this one, but it appealed immediately.
After printing and cutting out the template, I decorated the cracker with my SU  Baroque Border Stampin' Around Wheel, heat embossing the design in gold.
I added a Vintage label punched out with my Scallop Circle Punch. I thought that these might make good Christmas Day place markers... with a small gift inside!
