Flourishes and CardMaps for December

pagemaps-550x168
The Flourishes gals have a special treat today!  We teamed up with Page Maps to give you some fun inspiration in the form of…. nearly a dozen card sketches!  Each quarter Becky Fleck with PageMaps releases 10 new card sketches — called CardMaps — to spark some creativity in your craft spaces and today, those sketches are being put onto paper with the help of Flourishes!
Here’s the sketch I used…

And here is my card…

The tree spoke to me immediately, so I just had to use the new Trimmed with Love stamp set that was released recently.  My tree was stamped directly on the My Mind’s Eye designer paper with Forest Moss distress ink, and I added some vintage-like glitter to the lights and some of the ornaments for sparkle.  Behind the tree, the polka dot paper was cut out with the new Perfectly Pierced Classic Window, an exclusive-to-Flourishes die set.  I added my sentiment on a flag from the Nested Pennants, and embellished with a Crystal Trinket Pin and some Chocolate Kaisercraft pearls.
Becky  picked ten of our designers and then doled out her CardMaps to get our take on each design!  So…what are you waiting for?  You’ll need to head on over and see….
