Make a Joyful Christmas Card With Die-cut Winter Foliage

Hello friends! I've had such fun with Christmas cards lately, therefore I have another one to share today!  It's hard to NOT get crazy with Christmas crafts because I have all these brand new Impression Obsession dies in my hot little crafty hands. Today's project features two die sets that I know I'm going to use a LOT.

As you can see, I can't stop with the buffalo check on Christmas cards either. SorryNotSorry. 
Today's card begins with a panel of buffalo check and them a little mix and match die-cutting action. The Winter Foliage Dies include a great array of leaves and greenery (foliage, duh) to add to projects. All the little bits will make a great wreath or focal point on a card, but they are also the perfect accent to other images. On this card, they take center stage along with a beautiful JOY die-cut sentiment.
The Winter Foliage die set was really easy to work with because I left the dies all attached to each other and die-cut it a few times on different shades of green cardstock. Then I was able to mix and match the pieces and layer them up to create some clusters of greenery. I tucked them here and there along with the sentiment, plus a white circle to give some contrast and a landing place for it all.

The white enamel dots add balance with the pop of WHITE, and the twine and splatter of FSJ Gold Silk help tie the whole card together.
Today's post is part of Impression Obsession's Die Cut Obsession Blog Hop. The design team is sharing die cutting magic today, so head over to the IO blog to begin, or use the links below! I can't wait to see what they've each created for today!
