I love to die-cut a bunch of pieces at one time and then pull from them for different cards. This card began with some diecutting left over from previous projects. I had the snowflake, the foliage and the word Christmas sitting on my desk, so I decided to play around and come up a card. I diecut the word Merry from a different set, and I LOVE the way they look together - it's such a fun look to mix and match a cursive font with a typewriter or printed style. 
I added the sentiment to a scalloped circle die (which is almost always a great base layer for a die-cut sentiment!) Then I just played around with the foliage and the snowflake until it all WORKED. A few snowflake shaped sequins and a splatter of Sparkle Silk finished off this simple Christmas card.

Today's post is part of Impression Obsession's Die Cut Obsession. The design team is sharing die cutting magic today, so head over to the IO blog to see  links for everyone participating!

I love those snowflake dies but they look like they would be fiddly to cut. Did you have any problems getting them out of the die? Or pulled away from the paper they were cut from?

Karen, I haven't had a problem with them. I totally know what you mean though - snowflake dies in general are never AS easy to pop out as say, a circle or rectangle die. (Also it often depends on the paper used.) I always use a piercing tool to poke through the holes in metal dies when I have detailed shapes, but I haven't struggled with these. :)
