Christmas Cheer

Hello, sweet friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. :) I'm popping in today with a project for Wycinanka. Not only did I play with Christmas chippies (again!), but also one of their sweet kraft boxes. ♥️ This was created to deliver Christmas joy to a heartbroken mother.
This darling box is just under 4-inches square and comes with a card blank to perfectly nestle within. One of my favorite Maja Christmas paper collections is A Gift for You, so I pulled out what little I have left to decorate. How I treasure the rich traditional colors.
The box lid showcases the precious Let it Snow chipboard birdhouse, which you already know how much I adore! ♥️ It is tucked within a gorgeous Wycinanka Wreath, ruffling bows, and velvet jingly bells. The little card is also adorned with a few chippies. Very Merry Baubles hang from festive twine, while a gorgeous Christmas Nostalgy Frame holds my Christmas greeting (from My Craft Spot-no longer in business).
The chippies throughout my project are covered in Crackle Paint. I colored the paint for the wreath with Sea Grass Green (Magicals powder) from Lindy's Stamp Gang. Snow Writer accents my elements, which was sprinkled with Glamour Dust for Christmas sparkle. ♥️
This was a fun project and I'm excited to decorate another. I'm certainly in my happy place playing with Wycinanka goodies and pretty embellishments... especially when its purpose is to deliver joy to a heart in need. :) Most of the embellishments are from Live & Love Crafts. ♥️

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a sparkly day! :)
