Flourishes - Holiday Style!

With the Christmas season fast approaching - It's probably more than time to think about the "look" you want for your holiday cards this year! Need a little inspiration? Flourishes has plenty! They are releasing five- yes five- new sets just for you! One is full of wonderful sayings perfect for the holidays, another harkens back to a time in the City of David, yet another offers all the glitters with antique Christmas ornaments and one more is full of Christmas foliage done up in a classy and sophisticated way. I'm about to show you the whimsical one called Sleigh Ride! Here's a peek at the set....

And, here is what I did with it!
I loved the little saying "Santa's Sleigh" and immediately thought of what I could stuff inside the sleigh image! Remember THIS set called O Christmas Tree? Well, this is where I got the presents to stock Santa's sleigh!

I stamped my sleigh with Versamark, embossed with Gold Tinsel embossing powder and then colored with my watercolor pencils. I actually stamped two of the sleighs so I could layer the body of the sleigh to make it look more dimensional and let my presents slip inside! Use a fun corner punch, mat this piece on gold, add some red bling, and then mat it again on green paper. Don't forget the "Santa's Sleigh" saying inked up in black! The lucious sparkly red paper covering the front of my card is new to Flourishes. Click HERE to see all the variety! It is a vibrant glittered paper that just screams Happy Holidays. I added some sheer red ribbon and a fun little jingle bell and that was pretty much it!

Here's a close up so that you can see how I stuffed the presents in the sleigh!
