Flourishes New Release Day Four

Hi everyone! It’s day 4 — yes — day 4 of Flourishes’ Sneak Peeks for October! And, today’s sneak peek puts a natural spin on the holidays! It’s one that gives a classy and outdoorsy feel to any Christmas creation!  Introducing…

Naturally Merry Graphic
Send out Christmas wishes with a natural and earthy flair. This beautiful set called Naturally Merry, illustrated by Marcella Hawley, offers an elegant sugar pine cone and a sprig of holly. Pair these beauties with three elegant Christmas expressions and you have the making of a gorgeous set perfect for the holidays.

My card pairs the pinecone image from the set with the new Echo Park Christmas This & That 6x6 paper pad.  I cut out the pinecone with my Silhouette Cameo cut file on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock, and stamped the image (and my sentiment) with Memento Rick Cocoa ink.  I colored with Copics from the Copper, Flesh Tones 2 and Evergreen collections, shown below.  I added a Basque Red seam binding bow from the Poppy Color Made Easy collection.
