Classic Rejoice Released

When Flourishes opened its virutal doors in August of ’07, the Rejoice set was among some of the first Christmas images the company released. It offered an elegant angel and scripted words perfect for the holidays!  Just check out this elegant card by Betty Wright and you’ll see….

The Rejoice set has been retired, but part of the set – the word Rejoice – is making a comeback! It’s a single stamp and is one that is sure to make clean and classy Christmas cards for years to come!!

  • This image was illustrated by my friend Joan Machincheck , a master calligrapher.  I have always loved her work and am so glad that we own some of her creations.

    My card today takes this classic and adds some mirrored effects.  With past card I have made them very elegant, but today I opted for a simple card that could be easily be repeated.

    I stamped my image on Flourishes Classic White cardstock with Memento Black ink.  I used Copics to color the image using one from each of these groups: Evergreen, Spruce and Poppy.  The image was cut with Labels Fifteen.  Then the mirrored cardstocks from the store were used in Red Mirrored and Gold Mirrored Cardstock ( both available tomorrow in the Flourishes store).  The gold is cut with the same size Nestie and the red was done using the largest die in the set.  This mirrored cardstock works beautifully with the dies.

    Simple red rhinestones from Kaiserfive the  finish the touch.  The images were all attached to each other using Scor-It tape.  The dark green cardstock was given some texture with a Cuttlebug dotted swiss folder.  Dimensionals attach the focal image to the face of the card to make it pop. 

    This entire card took less than 30 minutes, so I can reproduce it easily for the many Christmas cards that are needed for the Christmas season.

    Thanks for stopping in today, hope you have a bit of inspiration to take with you.
