Flourishes Sneaks Day 1: Love & Lace


Hello all and welcome to Flourishes' April Release week! One thing you'll notice, right off the bat, is that this release has a very feminine feel! It's that time of year when we start to think about honoring the moms in our lives and watching parts of the world turn to spring! So, without further ado, let's get to the sneak of Flourishes' first set!

What's more beautiful than an antique cameo? This set illustrated by Lauren Pope showcases that feel. Stamp the silhouette in the center of this circle antique lace frame or use one of the six beautifully scripted sentiments inside. It's a timeless and classic image that can honor your mom or any new mom in your life! This set measures 4" by 6". This set is a perfect companion to our Antique Lace background stamp. It's another brand new stamp! See?




On to my creation! When I first saw this set, I knew that it would create beautiful cards in a jiffy - no coloring needed for this one!


This card is super simple because it's basically Flourishes Classic White Card Stock with some pink accents thanks to Angel Pink Memento Ink, some pink cotton linen ribbon and a fun Want2Scrap pearl pink circle embellishment. Right now Flourishes doesn't carry the circles but click HERE to see all the fun shapes they do have! You can see I used the new Antique Lace background for the bottom of my creation to add a little pattern. The die at the center of my card is the Spellbinders Heart Circles die that was cut thanks to my Grand Calibur.  I added a little embossed strip and using my Scor-Buddy, I did add an embossed line around the top of my card. The sentiment was added thanks to a 1" circle punch and tied on with Blossom Twinery. 

Here's a close up of my bow and tag!
