Flourishes Release Week: Greatest Gift

Hello Flourishes Friends! Have you enjoyed the Release Week? Are you ready for Flourishes last release day? It's a great one!
This set is called Greatest Gift and it's beyond beautiful!

I stamped the Greatest Gift image onto Flourishes Classic White cardstock in very black ink, coloring it in with Copics. After that I fussy cut out the image and placed popdots under it to lift it off the page and give it a 3D, life-like effect. I mounted the image onto a Kraft paper with black foil designs. Then I mounted the design paper onto black cardstock to make the design paper and image pop.

This has to be the quintessential Christmas card image for the ages. Mary is lovingly looking at baby Jesus and Joseph is looking in wonder and love, at his wife, Mary. You cannot get a more beautiful Christmas card image anywhere!

In honor of Flourishes, I am offering another blog prize during this Release Week! I am offering 3 Flourishes stamp sets, 2 yards of Flourishes May Arts Silk Ribbon: Mauve and Burgundy, plus some other laces and ribbons!

All you have to do is subscribe to my blog newsletter and leave a comment on ALL four days of the Flourishes Release Week. I will announce the winner August 14th. Be sure you remember to subscribe to my blog post emails, because you don't want to miss that announcement!

Please check out the other great designs from the rest of the Design Team, using the Greatest Gift stamp set, image!

  1. Such beautiful coloring! That blue is just stunning

  2. My Flourish stamps have always been some of my very favorites in my collection. I used many of them in last week's SCS DTGD challenges.
    I am excited to see some new releases and that they are back up and running.


Thank You For Your Kind Comments And Please Have A Wonderful Day!!
