Home for the Holidays

Welcome to our September New Release Week at Flourishes! We're so excited to have five gorgeous new sets to show off to you this month all with a Christmas and Holiday celebration theme! Can you believe there are only 106 days until Christmas? We know it's always great to get a jump start on those projects and cards early, so here we are with wonderful inspiration just for you. From our home to yours, this beautiful Home for the Holidays set offers welcoming words to share this Christmas season. Illustrated by Marcella Hawley, this stately door is sure to send heartfelt seasons greetings to homes both near and far. The set also offers an accent swag and three beautifully scripted sentiments as well. The set measures 4" by 6".


My Creation is pretty straight forward as I wanted the image to be the focus. with this image it really isn't hard to do. I have stamped the image onto classic white cardstock using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
Colored with Copic collections:






Added dimensionals to the back of the panel. My curved edge is using Spellbinders A2 Bracket One. Then tied off some beautiful Color Made Easy Pistachio Moss green ribbon and Voila!
It's such a beautiful set of images and our Design Team is going to show off how festive it is today!

Very pretty, love the subtle blues you added that really make the garland pop and tie it to your bling. Your ribbon layered under the popped up image is the perfect finishing touch.
Hugs, antonella :-)
