Finishing Touches!

Have you ever found yourself looking for that perfect embellishment - one that is classy yet understated at the same time? Well, Flourishes is now carrying just that kind of embellishment line!

This week the DT is posting "sneaks" showcasing all the fun new things that will soon be headed to the store!

Here's a peek at my card that I made tonight. Just an easy peasy 10-minute card that really lets a pretty stamped image, an elegant saying, and a fabulous embellishment do the talking!


To make my card, I just took a 2 by 4" strip of blue paper, stamped it with Vintage Wallpaper and embossed with super fine detail gold embossing powder. I matted it with gold metallic paper and black. Added it to my card base, added a saying and then attached some beautiful black silk ribbon, gathering the ribbon and attaching my double brad. You can also see there were clear rhinestones added to areas of my brads. If you scroll down, you can see by the photo I layered two of the floral brads to create my square like embellishment.

Want to see the entire collection of brads? These brads come in a kit and are sold by metal color ~ a beautiful gold, silver and antique copper. The kit features 36 separate pieces - 3 each of each style shown plus matching mini brads!

And here's the second kit that will be unveiled Friday! They are called Finishing Florals and the largest flower measures just under 1". It is a way to add a refined pop to your cards!
Before you go... you should check to see what Leslie, Laura and Stacy created with this new line! They have a bit of eye candy for you too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card IS classy and elegant! The new frou-frou dodads are really neat and so YOU! They go with your ribbon & bling habit perfectly! Does this call for an XL of your other much more necessary habit in order to celebrate your good fortune?
