Greetings friends. Before I share my die-cut sample with you, I wanted to remind you that the big annual Impression Obsession sale starts today. If there is anything you have had your eye on, now is a good time to buy! You can find all the items here or you can click on the banner above.
Today the designers are all sharing ideas for using Impression Obsession dies. My card today combines Christmas dies as well as a stamped background and some washi tape:
I don't know about you, but I often forget about using my washi tape. It does provide a nice background for your dies. I also used the smallest piece to help hold down my tree dies.
To make the card, I cut out my two trees with green cardstock and then placed brown cardstock behind the open areas to look like branches.
Next, I cut out my sentiment using white cardstock and my star from metallic gold.
For the background, I stamped my watercolor dots in green ink, turned the image around and then stamped the paper a second time with the same green ink. Some of the dots overlapped, but I thought it made the circles look a bit more random. You could use two different colors of ink if you wanted them to stand out more.
As a final touch, I got out my collection of washi tapes and added different patterns and widths of tape to the card. Here is a close up:
Have a fantastic day and don't forget about the sale!
