The beautiful Christmas Flourish stamp set from Chocolate Baroque is on special this week ! The beautiful flourishes are quite elegant (see photo at bottom of this post). I have two cards today created with these designs, one with lots of gold and the other a CAS one layer card.
I used blended Taffy (pink) & Snickerdoodle (warm beige) Smooch Inks to create the background. Next I stamped CB's Holly Snowflake (free stamp with December's Craftstamper Magazine) with Colorbox Gold Pigment ink. I embossed the Holly background with gold and embossed the sentiment with a Rose powder. The 'Believe in the Miracle' sentiment is from the Snowflake Flourish set, but it's also available as a single clear stamp.
I blended Snickerdoodle Smooch Ink around both the Holly background and the sentiment. I used Spellbinder's S5-090 die for the mat behind the quote. A matching bow, pearls, matting and it's done! The layers could be popped up but I left them flat for easier mailing.
And below is a one layer CAS design using the large Holly Flourish from the set which was so quick & easy to make ! I love to use layers & decoupage, but ouch it gets expensive at the post office! The flourishes are wonderful for clean & simple creations.
I used beautiful smooth purple card stock available at Crop Circles. I embossed the gorgeous Holly Flourish & sentiment with white and added red stickles for the 'berries'.
And below is the awesome Christmas Flourish set. The trees will also make great cards !
