From the Desk of

Hello Friends,

   It really feels as though I am writing a letter, an all but lost art.  This set,one of Flourishes releases this month, will make any piece of paper become a beautiful piece of stationary.  Isn’t it special when we receive a beautiful piece of correspondence?   I love to receive a lined envelope that holds a beautiful card or letter that highlights the thought and care the sender put into the delivery of special sentiments.

This card evokes those feelings for me.  I hope you had a smile when you first glimpse it as well.

The Webster Pages Diecuts really made the card come together easily.  This precut beautifully feminine floral paper with scallops in two sizes made accenting easy.  I used the new Spellbinder Grand Calibur to cut my circles, using both the new grand circles and the classic circles.  The image was stamped onto Flourishes Classic White Paper and colored with Copics, using E21 of the Flesh Tone Collection to color the stack of letters. The ribbon and bow were done using Flourishes  Tea Rose Collection (RV11), Dusty Rose (R43),  Dahila(R32)  and  Neutrals Collection (W3) on the pen.  The lace doilies were air brushed with Flesh Tone (E211) and highlighted with the Copper (E33).  The doily was accented with Kaiser pearls in blush.  The leaves are a sneak preview of a new ribbon we purchased at CHA and you will soon be able to have it as well.  The Webster Pages die cut was also accented with the pearls.  The coral circle is actually two circles,  joined with a message inside.  The card base is Flourishes Ivory cardstock.  I scored the top circle so it would open easily and attached the back of the card to it. A  small piece of ribbon and a Flourishes Finishing Touches ribbon slider finished it off.

If you enjoy taking part in a good sale and getting a bargain, I have two tips for you.  The Flourishes Gambler’s Sale is at 20% off on the listed items, and today is the last day of the Release bundle for this month.
