It's a Retirement Party!


Yesterday, Flourishes kicked off one heck of a Retirement Party and today the hoopla continues! Just like many of us expected... at 65% off, these sets are going fast! To take a peek at these bargains, be sure to click on our SALE PAGE to see for yourself the fun, fast moving deals!

On to my creation! Funny story, I made this card set earlier in the week because I knew we would be showcasing retiring sets and I love the silhouettes in the Summer Blossoms set. Well, apparently everyone loved Danielle's creations HERE that she showcased yesterday because -- the set sold out! I guess that just goes to show when the deals are good -- they get grabbed up fast!

I thought I'd go ahead and show the set anyway because the concept is kind of fun and Flourishes has a couple other silhouette sets -- like Kid's Play or even Spring Ephemerals. For my set, I wanted a real white on white look, and I wanted to use the same basic layout for each card. Check it out!

Card 1

 Card 2

 Card 3
 Card 4

For all, I used the stamp Vintage Wallpaper as a background, and then spiced it up with sentiments from both the Life Lines and Tag Lines sets. Add some black ribbon, and a mix of bling and... voila! I used not only black rhinestones, but THESE and THESE black mosaic stickers. On the larger one, I set a violet rhinestone in the center to accent it and I really like that touch -- kind of fun! So, there my friends you have it! One sketch, four ways to create one clean and simple card set!

For the next two days, our DT is putting some of these sets in the spotlight to give you some creative ideas! So, hop on over and see....

These are beautiful, Julie! I love the crisp black and white, and what a great idea to use the delicately inked Vintage Wallpaper background behind your focal image. Really makes a nice set!
