The Most Wonderful Time of the Month!

Yes, it is! And, I'm not only talking about the holidays, which are upon us, but Flourishes' December Release! It's a time when I get to show off some of Flourishes newest images! So, without further ado, today's set is another with class, style and lots of shape!

Introducing…
Flourishes' newest set Snow Wonderful offers an elegant window into the winter with two beautiful vignettes that capture the serenity of the season. Marcella Hawley's set features a country cottage alive with the winter fires burning and a pair of birds nestled in some greenery. This set features six lovely sentiments and both the images and sentiments are a perfect match with Flourishes' new Tailor-made Classic Keyhole Template Die!  When you look at the stamp set above, how nice is it to know that you have a coordinating die — a “Tailor-made” die — that delivers a beautiful cut and embossed shape each and every time? This die not only coordinates perfectly with Snow Wonderful but with Flourishes' Petals and Peace set as well!


On to my creation! 
I really wanted to keep  my design simple since this image "sings" all on its own! So, I paired some My Mind's Eye paper (Vanity Fair and Breeze) with some fabulous May Arts ribbon, crochet trim and a fun button!  Add some stitching and... the big part of this card is stamping, using my Classic Keyhole die and coloring my image up!  I stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento and then grabbed my Copic markers! I used these collections ---





And, as you can see below, I did add a little glitz to my image with the help of some glitter glue. I also added a sparkle to my birdie's eye with a white gel pen. . One trick I used to create a layer with my Keyhole die? I stamped my image, embossed and then cut along the black line on the stamp so that when I cut a Keyhole shape out of my pink paper, it would be a perfect mat. So easy peasy!

And, here's a peek at my sentiment tag (also using the die set!)
