Friday has rolled around again and the Flourishes Design Team has a treat for you today! We're digging into the Flourishes vault to showcase some of our sets that are retiring! As we make room for new, it means we need to clear out some of these beauties. So - if you like what you see along the way - be sure to add them to your shopping cart, once they're gone - they're gone for good!
It always feels a little sad to say goodbye to some beautiful sets we've loved so well - and today I have two of those sets that will be hard for me to see retiring - Sweet Nature and Seeds of Friendship. Today I put them together to create something special for a friend.
I began by stamping the seed packet onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured up the top part of the label with Copics, and then poked my scissor through the middle of the lower part of the seed packet and trimmed out the inside like a window. I popped that up onto this pretty paper (MME - Kate & Co - Oxford Lane). Then I stamped out the pretty ranunculus from Sweet Nature, coloured that with Copics and carefully trimmed it out, tucking it in my seed packet "window".
Along the bottom I used a gorgeous new Spellbinder's die Scalloped Border Two (LOVE). I think that scalloped edge just makes the card!
Other tiny touches - Color Made Easy True Blue Cardstock for framing, pretty white lace and MME - Enamel dots as accents. It's so cheerful! I love how it turned out!
