Two Joyful Christmas Card Ideas with Winter Foliage

Two of my favorite dies for Christmas cardmaking this year are the Joy die and the Winter Foliage die from Impression Obsession. Because they work so well together, today I have two different diecutting ideas for these beauties. This post is part of the latest challenge at Impression Obsession, and the theme is Holiday Wishes. Learn how YOU can join in, at the end of this post!

Let's talk about the Winter Foliage die set first. This set has 18 different branches, leaves and berries. BUT they're all attached together so one quick pass through the diecutting machine will give you a whole little pile of pieces to use. I ran the die through the machine twice for this first card with two different shades of green and then I mixed and matched the colors.

 For the sweet little poinsettias, I used the flowers from the Spring Wreath die set. They are the perfect size to complement the foliage.

The next card idea is a great way to use up lots of little pieces of this and that. I die cut a few more pieces but I also used what was left over from the previous card. I laid everything out and glued it down -  easy peasy. A few gold dots finished it off. 
Alright friends - it's your turn. Dig through your stash of Impression Obsession stamps and dies, and see what you have that works for our latest challenge, Holiday Wishes! Then link it up at the IO blog because you might just win a gift certificate to the shop! Over on the blog, you'll also find a list of the design team members who are sharing some Holiday Wishes inspiration to kick off the challenge. 

Don't have any Impression Obsession stamps and dies? I hate to be an enabler, but you really should check out their shop - every time I look, I see something I never noticed before. They have a HUGE selection, in EVERY style and theme! (#sorrynotsorry)
