Word Collage Christmas page to frame

Today I started a Christmas project which took longer than I expected but I am happy with the end results. 
I cut out this out using the Cricut Word Collage cart.  I cut the piece at 11 1/2 inches in red and green so I could mix the colors.  I used a piece of paper from a K and Company Christmas stack for the background that looked like old paper.  
To get the letters in the right place I used a trick that Lori from Scrapping My Stress Away shared on Sweet Sassy Diva blogspot.  After I cut out the collage I laid  the negative piece down over my background and taped it down.  Then I could glue all the letters in the right place by using the other piece as a guide.  Sorry I forgot to take a picture.  I then used Stickles and added MS holly punch to edges.  Tomorrow I plan to go get a 12 x 12 album frame to put it in.     
Entering this in the following challenges
