Leap and Soar

It's on to day 2 of Flourishes Release Week Sneaks!  Today, we have the end of a fabulously popular collection that is designed to give the inside and outside of your cards an endless supply of mix and match sentiments!
Inside&OutCongratsGraphic

Give the inside and outside of your cards a bit of pizzazz with these mix and match sentiments that are perfect for those 'Atta Boy' cards of congratulations! These fun scripted and print words are designed to be used together or apart on the inside or outside of your creations!

I really had so much fun with this set.  When I saw the longer secondary sentiment an idea popped in my head and here's where it went....


So unusually CAS for me, but I really love how it turned out!  I began by stamping congrats from this awesome set with Summer Sky Memento Ink onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  Then I curved the longer sentiment on my clear block and stamped it in Memento Love Letter ink.  Then I formed some clouds as a mask and used my ink blending tool to softly sponge in the cloudy sky with Summer Sky ink.  Then I just folded a mini paper airplane out of computer paper so it was light and easily foldable and added it to the card.  The background cardstocks are Color Made Easy - Poppy and Color Made Easy - True Blue.


If you like what you see on the designers' blogs, you can pre-order this set HERE now! You could also find it HERE as a part of our New Release Bundle for March (you save 10% when you purchase as a bundle!) All three of our new sets will be unveiled on Friday. So.... stay tuned!
