All is Calm. All is Bright

Since it’s Friday and I love to play with my Flourishes goodies and show them off to you on Fridays, I thought I’d continue that tradition today - even though we Flourishes girls have the day off.  I have a pretty and peaceful card to show you that I created for one of our Flourishes Catalogues earlier this year.  It’s with one of my favourite Christmas sets from Flourishes, Snow Wonderful.


Isn’t this scene just beautiful?  I love colouring this design to have the feeling of a winter night sky.  I stamped the image on Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then cut it with the coordinating die Flourishes Classic Keyhole die.  Colouring is done with Copics and I paired it with Color Made Easy Cool Neutrals and Color Made Easy True Blue cardstock.  I love using this Spellbinders die to create the curved design on the edges too.  I think it pairs well with the curves of the die.  


I embossed the sentiment onto vellum.  My favourite way to use this part of the die set, because it still shows off the colouring underneath.  A little slate grey trim, and silver metallic string accents the edges.  

We’ve had a great couple of days as a family enjoying some calm and brightness to the Christmas season.  I am so blessed by the celebration of the birth of my Saviour and the family God has given me.  Blessings to each of you friends!  Talk again soon!

Truly beautiful! I do love the vellum sentiment panel which lets a hint of the image show through. Very nice!
