CardMaker & Impression Obsession Hop


Welcome to the CardMaker/Impression Obsession Blog Hop!

This is the first time I had worked with products from this company and I am now in LOVE!

The versatile Merry Tree die can be used so many ways.


On the all White Metallic card, I used only the sentiment.
(Die cut 3 times, stacked together then adhered to card front).



Always thinking of non-traditional colors, I went with Neon using the complete Merry Christmas die.
Background on card base was airbrushed using the die cut " flourish of the tree" as a mask.


Flowers and tiny leaves were added strategically along the flourishes.

You could also use just the flourishes from this die set throughout the year.


Impression Obsession is giving away (2) $25 gift certificates...woohoo!!!
