♥ Christmas Wonderland ♥

I can't believe it's only 37 days until Christmas? My favorite time of year! I LOVE to decorate my home for Christmas. I also love the smells of Christmas...the twinkling lights...the gathering of friends and family...making Christmas cards...but most importantly, I love to see the excitement and joy in my kids eyes. Nothing like it! Yesterday, my sweet husband surprised us with a 6 foot plus tall Santa I had been admiring in the store. I don't know who was more or my 7 year old! :)

I'm definitely in the holiday spirit for sure now! So why not make a Christmas card with some beautiful Spellbinders Dies by Amazing Paper Grace! For my card, I am using the Coralene's Chemise Layering Frame Large Etched Dies. Such stunning, intricate dies yet sturdy enough to use as the base for my card.

I die cut the Swirl Frame twice using dark green cardstock and patterned paper. I then adhered the patterned paper die cut over the green cardstock to give it some dimension.

I added lots of chunky glitter to all the edges with some Glossy Accents to give it a "frosty, icy" look. The papers are from the Sweet Peppermint Paper Pad by Prima.

Don't forget to check out the rest of Becca's new Chantilly Paper Lace Collection !
