From the Desk of……

As card makers, it’s in our creative blood to love sending snail mail. We create with whimsy in hopes that those on the receiving end of our creations will feel the joy we felt creating the cards and gifts. Well, today as we unveil our second set for February, we honor cardmakers far and wide and give them an elegant set for their all occassion cards!


From the Desk Of Graphic

This beautiful set by Marcella Hawley gives you three focal images to send some love in an envelope. Blooming Dogwood branches arching over letter-writing supplies, a packet of treasured letters tied in ribbon, and a desktop bouquet give you plenty of options. There’s even a tiny inkwell. Add in four beautifully scripted sentiments, and this set is sure to be one you reach for when it comes time to create an all-occasion card! Would you like to win this set? Simply leave a comment on the Flourishes blog and you’ll be in the running! We’ll announce the winners in our Saturday Winner’s Circle Post (12 noon Central Standard Time).

Here is my card made by this beautiful set.  I just loved coloring it.  It is all done with the several groups of the Flourishes Copic Collections.  It is so fun to blend the colors from other groups.



I stamped my image onto Flourishes Classic white cardstock and used a vast number of the lightest shades of Hollyhocks, and Peony, Sky and Flesh Tones1and Buttercup for my coloring.  Living in the deep south we are lucky to have hundreds of Dogwoods, both white and pink that bloom as understory trees.  They a beautiful and delicate.  I tried to make mine as realistic as possible.  The vellum was Cuttlebugged and punched for the delicate look I wanted to achieve.  The white braid and small pink silk ribbons are both from Flourishes as in that pretty Webester Pages button (which is on sale I maght add)
