Flourishes Sneaks Day 2: Under The Big Top!


Welcome to Day Two of our January New Releases at Flourishes! We have your ticket to fun in this great set called, Under the Big Top! You’ll find our own company of trained animals, circus elements and a clown to give you a wonderful performance on your next celebration. This silhouette-style set illustrated by Lauren Pope measure 4 x 6 inches and includes 9 whimsical circus images and 3 sentiments for occasions far and wide. What a fun set to usher in a little celebration!

On to my creation...

What's more fun than a bear riding a bike on a tightrope? Dare I say.. not much??? :-) Well, I have to say it was strange. A card... without coloring? Really? I mean, I colored a little bit of that darling bear's skirt, but it was over and done with in less than five minutes! Because of the ease, I know that this set is bound to be one I reach for to make kids' birthday cards. The spirit of it is just too fun! 

I started by making cuts using Flourishes Classic White Card Stock, my Silhouette Cameo and the Under The Big Top File that will be released this Friday!! After I was done cutting the bear, the pennant and a couple tickets -- time to stamp! I inked up the bear in brown (Rich Cocoa Memento) and then went back over the bike with a red marker and the wheels with black. Super easy peasy! Add a few little dots with a white gel pen, some sparkle thanks to a sparkly gel pen (Sakura), and.. then some bling with the help of a rhinestone! You can't really see the sparkle of the gel pen -- but trust me, it's festive! ;-)

Here's a close up.... I attached the bear with foam tape to give this little lady some POP! 

I matted it all up with the help of some fun decorative paper -- Echo Park Keepin' Cozy, and Style Essentials.   Love the bold splashes of blue and red -- those primary colors remind me of the circus!
