Look! These Christmas Card Ideas Are Extra Sweet With Die Cut Treats!

Hey crafty peeps! Check out these Christmas and winter card ideas with the sweetest die cut treats. These candy canes and coffee drinks are calorie free and perfect for your card making and craft projects this holiday season.

Today's card layouts are both similar, starting with the Cute Scalloped Rectangles die. This cute rectangle makes the perfect resting place for today's sweet treats.
Today's first card features the Coffee To Go dies. This set makes the cutest take out coffee cup, and it's fun to cut from a variety of colors and prints. I started out with a patterned paper cup, and then I added the sleeve cut from corrugated stock. (It reminds me of a Starbucks cup sleeve! You could even keep one the next time you get coffee, and die cut it for your cards!)
To make this card a little more festive for winter, I added sprigs and leaves from the Winter Foliage die set. This is a set that I grab almost every single time I create holiday cards. It's definitely a powerhouse for winter and Christmas card making! I love the pop of color the different shades of green cardstock add to this card.
The next card features the Primitive Candy & Holly dies. I layered some patterned papers together for the base of this card, and then added some more of the Winter Foliage to my candy cane. Both of today's cards feature sentiments from the Cool Yule stamp set.
