Call Me...

We're back for Day 3 of Flourishes May New Releases to show off for you! It feels so good to connect with an old friend doesn't it? We have the perfect set for you today that brings in some fun vintage-style that celebrates friendship. Introducing....

CallMeGraphic

What's the 411 on this set? It's a darling, vintage feel set that helps you stay connected with friends far and wide. This set, whimsically illustrated by Marcella Hawley, offers three main images plus six spunky sentiments you can use to catch up with friends. This set measures 4 by 6". We think it's very charming and so much fun! And for even more fun, we've got Silhouette Cut Files for this set that you will see along the way too.


I really love how this card came together.  And just for you...I have a tutorial on how I made the honeycomb quilting on this design at the CardMaker Magazine Blog today.  Please go and check it out!  

I began by using my Silhouette and the cut file for this set to cut out this cute vintage shaped scene and then stamped the image from Call Me onto Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then coloured it up with some Copics to match with this pretty Teresa Collins Far and Away designer paper, popping it up on some True Blue Color Made Easy Cardstock.  



Finishing details include some pretty iridescent ribbon and ivory jute twine around the Tailor Made Classic Tag with the sentiment.  


 


Take a trip on over to visit the Design Team today to see their 411 on this sweet set, and don't forget about today's...
