Christmas Cards

I had so much fun participating in the Swirlydoos Christmas Card/Tag/ATC swap! At the end I was running so late I forgot to take pictures of some of the cards I made to send. I did however get two pics..

The first:
My Poinsettia card turned out a shimmery beautiful card!
I used a Hero Arts Poinsettia background stamp. I then painted the background gold with Lindy's Stamp Gangs Don't Eat Golden Snow Starburst, I painted the poinsettia red using an old old pot of Shimmerz..Remember when they first came out? Yep that is how old that is and it still shimmerz with such shimmering goodness! The leaves were painted with old old jar of Green Shimmerz!
I added some gold micro beads in the middle of each flower. The bling was zva creative and the poinsetta flower was prima. I just love the shimmer of this card!

Here is the inside:
I took a image from a Graphic 45 2011 Christmas Collection and used an old stamp that I've had for years. I don't remember what company it came from.
This was my fav card of the Christmas Season!

Card Two:
This card was made very simple. I painted some cardstock with Shimmerz 24 Karat Vibes..Talk about gorgeous shimmer! oh my goodness! I then stamped the ornament using a Stamppendous Ornament set. Added some shimmery trim, a few prima leaves and poinsetta and some more gold trimmed ribbon.

I am so late in posting this. I have been frantically working on Christmas Cards and Tags that I completely forgot to post this layout and it's one of my favorites!
The papers came from the Scraps of Elegance July Isn't She Lovely kit. That kit was stunning! I am saving every scrap to use as cards because it was so so beautiful!
 I handmade the dress using a dress form chipboard and just love how it turned out. The mat was cut with my Silhouette Cameo which I adore! Notice how intricate the cuts are..I'm still amazed at how well the newest addition of the Silhouette cuts!!!
I do believe this may be one of my favorite layouts from 2011!
