Flourishes Sneaks Day 2: Letters in Blossom!

Hi all and welcome to day 2 of Flourishes Sneak Peeks! Hope you loved Summer Blossoms as much as I did. That's for sure going to be one of my "go to" sets! The next set in Flourishes' new Blossom Collection features beautiful letters perfect for monograms, short sentiments, even name cards! And, it offers the alphabet -- from A to Z -- in pure florally embellished perfection!

Introducing...


Doesn't the look of that letter just make you want to sigh? This 6" by 8" set is larger than the standard Flourishes set -- offering a nice size monogram to create gorgeous correspondence, monogrammed items, or even home decor. This set is the perfect companion to sister sets Happily Ever After SS199 and Summer Blossoms SS197! If you like what you see, this set is available for pre-order now, just click HERE! And, you can buy all three in the New Release Bundle HERE! Keep in mind though, the bundle will only be available through June 22nd!

On to my creation!

I knew when I first set sights on this set that I wanted to use it to create easy yet elegant monogrammed creations! And so, with just a few items, I *think* I pulled it off! I stamped the letter "T" using Memento Toffee Crunch ink and colored it up with Copic markers. I used these collections!

When I was finished coloring, I did cut out my letter using Spellbinders Classic Circles LG die and then the Classic Scalloped Circle LG dies for the mat. I embossed the scalloped circle and then, using a sanding block, sanded to reveal the paper's white core. The actual card base was run through my Grand Calibur with THIS beautiful brocade embossing folder. On the bottom, I scored some vertical lines using my Scor-Buddy to give it some depth. Add some melon colored seam binding accented with some Prima crystals and... ta da! Easy peasy lemon squeezy! I am thinking of the friends that I can use this set for to create personalized cards in a flash!

Here's a close up of the darling little floral adorned letter!
