Blog Hop- Dies Day 1

Impression Obsession has released a bunch of new dies, and the design team would like to show you lots of cool ideas for using them during a three-day blog hop.  The best part?  There will be a winner chosen each day from participants who comment on each DT blog for that day, including the Impression Obsession blog. The winner for each day will be announced in the next day's Impression Obsession blog post. Each winner will get to select 3 Dies of their choice!!!

For my card, I paired the Fancy Tree die ( DIE031-N) with the Cover a Card Swirls background (CC012).  I thought the two matched perfectly.  The picture didn't pick up the metallic paper very well, but it is one of the gorgeous silk papers from The Paper Cut.  The card ended up being pretty clean and simple and definitely easy to mass-produce for Christmas.

Don't forget to leave a comment on my blog as well as the following blogs for a chance to win three dies of your choice:

Good luck!
