We’re delighted to bring you another Friday round of creations with the Senior Design Team at Flourishes! Today we’re getting in the cozy Christmas mood and showing off to you all that’s beautiful about the holidays at Flourishes. You’ll see some of our beautiful newer offerings for the season and some of our equally lovely past sets too. Time to be inspired for one of our favorite times to create cards for others!
For today's Christmas inspiration, I wanted to keep it clean and simple so I stuck with the colours black and white and added a pop of green to "'fest it up"!
Classic White Cardstock card base and stamping layers using the "Trimmed With Love" stamp set and my favourite black ink, "Tuxedo Black" by Memento. I used a variety of the stamps included in this stunning stamp set: the wreath of mistletoe, the word "Peace" and the large decorated Christmas tree. I matted all of my simple layers using Flourishes' Classic Black Cardstock.
For my trim, I created a band and bow from the lush "Iced Lime" Seam Binding Ribbon. And if you look really closely, I used some Stickles and some Glossy Accents on all of the decorations and the ribbon in my tree. This card has so much shine to it in real life. To add the hue of green to my tree's back ground, I used some Ranger "Bundled Sage" Distress Ink and a my ink blending tool.
For the design of my card today, I used the latest sketch from The Paper Players:
I also using this week's challenge #48 "Use Bows" from the Christmas Card Challenges.
Thanks for stopping by today. Now go on and check out the rest of the Design Team's cozy Christmas creations today!
