Top Dog Dies Christmas Blog Hop

For the first card I used the "Snowflake Trio"


The largest snowflake die was used to create the beautiful shape on the white layer, so that when attached to the Paver Red CS it produced a gorgeous negative.  I then added the die cuts of the middle and smallest snowflake.  Sparkly Crystal glitter was added to the layers of snowflake and as a final touch a large gem! 


For my second card I used "Sew Much Fun Die Set" and it truly was SO much fun to play with the dress form.  (note that I didn't use the pun this time)  I have a blast every time I play with the dress form and I think it is because it's a bit like playing paper dolls, only more fun because I am totally in charge of what goes on the dress!


The dress form was cut out in white and then in black CS.  I cut away the bottom and top of the form to leave a little black dress.  I added a tulle skirt, three festive fibers and rhinestone buttons!  Thanks for looking and now on to the fun PRIZE details:

I must admit, I never thought of putting it on the dress form die. Since I like bling, your Season Sparkled card had me drooling. Fabulous job on both cards.
