Flourishes Sneaks Day 2: Roses Are Red!

Hi all and welcome to day 2 of Flourishes’ January Sneak Peeks featuring three of our newest sets! Today's sneak is all about love and a cute little poem we all seemed to learn when we were kids! Only now, it's paired with a few beautiful botanicals that are just screaming to be colored up! Are you ready?


RosesAreRedGraphic 

Roses are Red by Marcella Hawley puts a new spin on that old, sweet poem! Roses are Red, Violets are Blue --- you finish the phrase with these mix and match sentiments! This set offers a bunch of roses and violets and a single flower bunch that is perfect to send to your sweetie. Use this set for Valentine's Day or any time you want to serve up some love in the form of a card! Set measures 4" by 6".

On to my creation! I just love the little rose that is in this set. I thought it was so sweet and when I looked at Flourishes Victorian Ovals, I knew that this stamp had a "home" right there in the center of this pierced die!
 So, I started with the die, and when it was still on, I sponged on some Angel Pink Memento Ink. I used my Silhouette to cut out the cut file -- the new one to match this set will be released Friday! From there, I grabbed my Copic markers. Be sure to check below to see the color collections I used! Add some lace, pearls and some fun bits of Candi and you're almost done! I used the paper and ribbon from the brand new 123 Create Kit called Love Story. LOVE this paper -- so classy! You might wonder how I got the shape of my card. Well, I played around with the Grand Labels One die and used it to cut and emboss my paper and then, I trimmed the edges to serve as a curve mat for the front of my card.

And... here's a close up of that darling little rose and violet combo!
