As a special treat today, some of Flourishes senior design team are joining the FTTC designers for today's Timeless Tuesday post. We are showing off a set that has been a favorite of some this past year but hasn't been available to the public until now! It's called....
Coneflower and Bell Flower -- two beauties perfect for sending a note of gratitude. This set was released as an exclusive set for FLIP members and is now availble to the public. Before today, you had to be a FLIP member to get your hands on it; but now you can buy it! Illustrated beautifully by Marcella Hawley, this set measures 4 by 6" and offers not only 2 beautiful focal flowers but 6 sentiments and a script border. The stamp set is available right now as a pre-order HERE. It’s a beauty!
On to today's challenge! All you need to do is use this sketch for your Timeless Tuesday creation...
And, here's my card....
The pretty papers are from the Summer Fresh 6x6 pack by Simple Stories. I embossed the red background paper with a paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder. I added a couple of navy Candi's in the top corner, and shined them up with some Glossy Accents. I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the main image and sentiment. The final touches are some red gingham ribbon, a navy button, and a few staples in the bottom corner.
When choosing colors for my card, I decided to look around the 'net at pictures of coneflowers. I always think "purple" when I think of coneflowers; but I wanted to do something different. So, when I found the photo below, I knew I wanted to color my flowers red.
