Pin It
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!




Here is my card using Handmade Snowflakes:

I really love this fun and pretty snowflakes. I used only one image for this card but inked with 3 different colors - blue, gray and silver. I designed the center piece with 3 different die cut piece. Then I added the crystal rhinestone swirls.
