 Hi everyone, this is Kelly of kbiendesigns.  Even though my Christmas card had no Cricut cuts, I wanted to post it as my way of saying Merry Christmas to you all!

Now, for my Christmas projects with the Cricut.  These are very simple, and if you've seen some of my other posts, you know that's how I like my projects lately!  A good friend of mine has some Hallmark 3d Christmas frames which are adorable.  One look at them and I though to myself, I could do that!  So I took a shadow box frame and started.  First I cut out some snowflakes (1" and 1/2") from TC December 25 cart.  Then I cut out the trees from at 5" and 3".  All were cut from white glitter cardstock.  I then hand cut the snowy hills.

The assembly was fairly easy.  I cut a piece of thin chipboard to exactly match the opening.  I then attached that to the back of the frame (I thought this would make it easy for the recipient to add a photo).  I then started layering.

I used a lot of pop dots to layer the snowy hills, then really lucked out since I was short on time, and used the chipboard stickers which matched perfectly!  My 3d look was achieved.

Easy peasy!  Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
