The Holiday Collection Framelit Dies

For today's post, I used the Holiday Collection Framelit Dies in a new way...at least for me it is.  

Rather than stamping the images from the Scentsational Season and then cutting with the framelits, I cut one of the layers using the framelits.

Doing this, makes the card look like a collage or a scene.  I then backed the cutouts with scraps of Be of Good Cheer DSP.  Another good way to use up those scraps and use your imagination for the cutouts.

I figure that the Candy Cane looks gourmetish (probably not a word, but it works) with the traditional red and white coming with a touch of green.  The Christmas Tree is already decorated with baubles and the Gingerbread Man is sporting polka dots.

This is a great way to have fun.
