Christmas Cards with Christmas Wreaths using Impression Obsession 'DIE023-X Twig, Wreath Die Set', and Spellbinders, 'Tis the Season', 'Christmas Blooms' dies.

Dear Bloggers,

I pulled my 'Twig, Wreath Die Set' by Impression Obsession out of the far reaches of my overfilled drawer.  This is such a lovely wreath and I was so excited to finally use the dies after purchasing them quite a few years ago.  

I had a wonderful time layering leaves, bells and bows. I even made a little bow out of scrap felt I found lying around.  I went to town adding bling all over the twiggy wreath. The sentiments from the set, 'Christmas Magic' by Spellbinders, were foiled. This was my second, and significantly improved attempt at using my new Glimmer Foil Machine by spellbinders. I love the mixed fonts.

I wanted the cards to feel 'rustic and warm' so I rummaged through my stash to find papers with wood grain, country checks, leaves and more.

I was very excited to finally use my red jewel star on a long pin: can you see it on the card with the black and white check background?  I think the star has been waiting 'for its time to shine', for well over 10 years.  I hope the recipient of the card appreciates it (lol). I do, however, still have a matching green star, that is still waiting for its 'forever home'. Maybe next Christmas?? or the one after that.....
