Shimmer Paint Designs

I've got an annual Christmas card party this weekend for a special group of customers and am in the design phase right now. Don't worry- I always do this. If I design too soon I get tired of the cards before the party rolls around. I have decided to use two designs I did this season so far- two of my favorites. When I have all 5 designs chosen I'll show you a group photo.

This design utilizes a Mojo Monday sketch I missed last week (MOJO112) and some Christmas Cocoa DSP. Did you notice that these two patterns have a sheen to them? Oh yes! It is quite pretty- but subtle. It also very nicely coordinates with the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint in SU's current Holiday Mini catalog. In fact, that is what I inked up this flourish from Baroque Motif with- Shimmer Paint. Isn't it lovely?!

This is an alternative my ladies will be able to make if they prefer. I've always wanted to try this 3D type of card so this is the perfect opportunity.

If you would like a Christmas card class of your own contact me soon because time is running out and dates are getting harder to schedule.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope to have more for you tomorrow.
