Flourishes Christmas in July



Here we are in the hot days of summer and I'm showing you a snippet of a Christmas card!  With some of the temps out there some of you would probably be welcoming something cooler :)  Well you've likely noticed that for the last week we've been having a Christmas in July sale at Flourishes.  All the Christmas Stamp sets are 20% off!    A great deal if you like to plan ahead, or just can't bear another day without some of the gorgeous Christmas sets that are available in the store.  I think Flourishes has some of the most beautiful Christmas stamp sets out there!


This little snippet features a beautiful set is called Warm Winter Wishes and it incorporates this wonderful whimsical snow man, mittens, snow...all the elements to make something precious for Christmas or winter.  You can see more on the Flourishes Blog today along with a whole list of Christmas Inspiration from the DT this week!  Here's Thursday's Link,  Wednesday's Link, and Monday's Link.  


A little more on the details....I colored up this fun little guy and his stripedy scarf with Prismacolor pencils and added that stripedy feeling to the design of the card with some Webster's paper from last year.  I added some soft white to the dots of the Beaded Oval Nestabilities and then wove some of the pretty Raspberry cotton crochet ribbon through it.  Then I also colored up the snowflake pearls with Copics to match the paper.  

So don't miss out on this great deal on these Christmas sets at Flourishes!  And be sure to check out Danielle's Blog today, she's showing off Vintage Postcards and it's beautiful!
