Sneak Peeks Day 1: Trimmed with Love!

Hi all and welcome to day one of Flourishes' Sneak Peeks for its Christmas release! The DT is starting the sneaks early because we have FIVE new sets to unveil and want to make sure you see all of them in their full glory. Get ready for a fun and festive week ahead! There is definitely something for everyone on tap this week.Today, we are starting with a classic Christmas image and we know that it will be a favorite for years to come!



A beautifully adorned Christmas tree perfect for the season - that is what you get with this offering from Marcella Hawley called Trimmed With Love! Decked to perfection, this set features not only a main focal image but a mistletoe wreath, perfect for tags or packages, a handful of sentiments to adorn your cards or creations plus a trio of greetings designed to fit our Tailor-made Classic Tags Dies. 

On to my creation!

I started by stamping the tree using Rich Cocoa Memento ink on Flourishes Classic White and then, cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty One. Color it all up with Copics (see below for colors) and then mat it all up! As you can see, I did use Flourishes Tailormade Classic Tags die for my little sentiment that I attached to a seam binding bow. I attached it with a little bit of gold cording. Add some stitching, some piercing, some Champagne colored pearls and almost done! I wanted to add a more antique feel -- so while both of my dies were still on my image, I outlined the inner part of the die with the lighter markers in the Sunflower Copic Collections. I like the antiqued edge it gave it! 

And, here's a close up! You can see (kind of) that I added a little sparkle thanks to some glitter glue!
