I Love You, Valentine


Welcome to another Flourishes Friday!  This week we want to show you another peek at the beautiful sets we released this month.


Today I created a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 square card with the gorgeous new set Roses are Red.  Isn't that just a stunning bouquet?  I cut out the shape using our Silhouette cut file for this set, inked the bouquet in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Flourishes Classic Ivory.  I really love using the cut files because it results in such a polished look.  I mounted the bouquet on our Perfectly Pierced Classic Windows Die cut from some pretty MME - Market designer paper.  Because of the peachy/rosy reds in the paper I coloured up the roses with a mix of peachy red and rosy red Copics.    


Then I added some lovely Color Made Easy seam binding in a crumpled double bow, accented with a Color Made Easy Emerald Coast Button and a little iridescent string to accent, and the sentiment stamped in Love Letter Memento Ink.


And here's the inside of the card, isn't the little {heart} for the apostrophe in the word Valentine's adorable?  




The very talented Design Team that I'm blessed to be a part of will have some gorgeousness to show you with these January sets today too:


Don't forget that the January New Release sets are available at a discount for one last day, today!  Don't miss out on the great deal and these beautiful stamps.  I enjoyed sharing them with you again :)
