A Waltzingmouse Christmas – November 2013 – Day 1

Card making ideas by Becca Feeken using Waltzingmouse - Alpine Christmas and Spellbinders
Hi there blog friends I hope you’re in the mood for Christmas because today is the first day of “A Waltzingmouse Christmas” and there are lots little surprises in store.  As you might guess, Christmas is a BIG holiday with Claire and she creates the most scrumptious designs for a crafters stash.  Today we’re sharing a set called Alpine Christmas and I love the whimsy of the set.  I pulled the little snowman and made a glittery scene on a round card using Spellbinders Grand Stately Circles, Spellbinders Grand Circles and Spellbinders Create A Flake Five.
