Let it Snow...

Hi  all -- time for day two of Flourishes fabulous sneak peeks for October! Today, it's all about the whimsy of those winter months when the temperature drops and the flakes start to fly!


These whimsical snow flakes are just ready and waiting to be added to all of your winter and holiday themed creations! These hand-drawn flakes, created by Marcella Hawley, offer a dash of charm and style. This 4" by 6" set also offers three scripted sentiments that will give your cards the perfect punch.

And, what's more? This set is taking center stage in Flourishes brand new Class In A Box Kit for October! Here's a peek!

This rustic card kit with country charm comes with the stamp set, plus all the pre-cut paper, embellishments, trim and ribbon needed to make 6 cards -- two each of three designs! Just stamp, and put these beauties together. It's quick and easy card inspiration delivered right to your door! When you're done, save the full-color, glossy instructions to make all of these cards on your own in the future! This kit also features the 6" by 6" paper pack by Bazzill called Nordic Pines. What fun!
Yep a Christmas card gift set. I found this fun Silhouette Vintage Mailbox file and had to play with it. My mail box is using Crumb Cake card stock, after all the cuts were made I embossed Handmade Snowflakes randomly in white embossing powder.
Then to make the snowflakes stand out a bit more I took Copic Collection Iced Aqua and highlighted in between the flakes. My handle on the box is created with Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders One die, that is die cut on both ends to make a beautiful handle. For my card I took one of the snowflakes and stamped it in the center of my Classic White Card Stock using tempting turquoise ink. My sentiment is stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Die cut Spellbinders A2 Bracket Border One along the bottom edge. Tied off some Color Made Easy Emerald Coast teal blue ribbon and added a pave blue jewel to the center of my snowflake. Voila! This also fits the Challenge Christmas this month and your chance to win some Flourishes Goodies.
