Royal Friday!

With Flourishes celebrating our second birthday, we know our customers are worth their weight in gold! To get ready for our smash release in August, we wanted to set the scene by honoring our customers who we consider - royalty!

So...the DT has come up with some Royal looking cards today and we'd like to invite you along!

We have two weddings coming up, one my husband is performing tomorrow and my mom was looking for a card for a great-nephew's wedding. So this will be for one of the weddings.

I made it look regal by adding lots of embossing, the white layer is embossed with my Texturz plate and the black layer is heat embossed in black with the Flourished Elements set. I watercolored the rose with reinkers and then added Royal Red Shimmerz overtop to give it that gorgeous sparkly shine. A Floral Accent with Spellbinders, Kaiser pears, and gorgeous satin ribbon give it that royal shine and shimmer.


So, will you join us?

HOW TO PLAY: Try to create a card fit for a king or queen! Use regal embellishments, a lavish paper, a beautiful image, glitz it up! Link yourcreation to the post on the Flourishes Newsletter or upload to Splitcoast using the keyword FLLCAUG. You have until Friday, August 14th 10th at 5 PM Eastern to have your creation uploaded! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

WHAT YOU COULD WIN: All of our new releases that will be revealed starting nextWednesday, August 12th over on the Flourishes Newsletter.

I was thinking I love how this gorgeous card would work so well for a groom. This is fit for a queen OR king! Then I read it's for your nephew -- perfect! Beautiful enough for the bride, and strong enough for the groom. The shimmer and satin and your amazing coloring -- wow -- this is one beautiful card!
