Flourishes September New Release Sneak Peek - Day 1


Hello Monday!!
I don't even remember when the last time I posted something on Monday...
Anyway, here I go!

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".


Here is my card using Home for the Holidays:

Since the image is a quite big, I decided to make a center step card. The folding always gives 3D effect to the image even though no dimension on the image. I designed the card with mostly white and some bright yellow and red for the accent colors.
I just noticed that one red pearl is missing from the card...oops! It was there when I made it though. :P






Supplies:
Home for the Holidays
Classic White cardstock, Color Made Easy cardstock - Poppy, Sunflower, MME designer paper pad
Memento - Tuxedo Black, Cantaloupe
Copic markers - Poppy, Flesh Tones 2, Sunflower, Ice Blue, Rich Browns, Olive Green, Evergreen, Leaf Green, Burnt Orange

Very pretty card. I haven't tried a center step card and will definitely give it a try. I love the polka dot paper you used.
