FLOURISHES FREE FOR ALL!!!

Happy TGIF!

We hope you enjoyed last weeks Flourishes September Christmas Release? As always the week after the release the Senior Design Team is hosting a FREE FOR ALL, where we pick up our favorite Set from the release and show off another project. These Christmas Sets were absolutely fabulous...and if you missed them click HERE to see them all.

Since we are just starting the Pre-Holiday Season I figured I start out with the Trimmed with Love Set and work myself through new Christmas projects in the next couple of weeks....so stay tuned!!!





My inspiration for this card came from this weeks CR84FN63 Color Challenge......


I really enjoyed working with these colors and I think this gift set turned out to be a great idea for a man...what do you think???

The Christmas Tree was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa onto Flourishes Classic Ivory CS. The Design Paper is from the Authentique Genuine Collection. Next I embellished the card with the fabulous Natural Linen Ribbon, the awesome Metal Button Staples, some Prima Fall Crystals. The sentiment was stamped onto the Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Tag Die. and I attached them to the card and box with some Kraft Jute Twine. The gift box was created with the Sizzix Pillow Box Die.

Thank you so much for stopping by and please visit all the other Senior Designers for their take on the September Release Set.
