Stampin’ Up Christmas Cards Using Wonderland

I seem to be going to the Wonderland stamp set and Winter Wonderland Specialty Designer Paper collection a lot for my Stampin’ Up Christmas cards this year.  I love those trees and sentiments!

Handmade Christmas Card – ILCS26

For today’s handmade Christmas card I pulled out the retired Deck the Halls designer paper collection.  It’s so beautiful on its own.
