The Christmas Flourishes Collection Intro Blog Hop!


Hello Crafty Friends!

Today is an exciting day as it is release day for the new Christmas Flourishes Collection design by Becca Feeken for Spellbinders.  Oh- this collection is full of gorgeous dies and a coordinating embossing folder that will help you create beautiful cards and projects that your loved ones will treasure.

Today's projects created were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.

For my project I chose the Merry Flourish die set (S4-1243):
Right away I wanted to create a card with the classic Christmas colors of red, green, gold, and white.  The dies were used to cut metallic card stock as the shimmer of the card stock is reminiscent of the shiny bulbs hung on tree boughs.
I cut the main die twice: once using red card and the Merry insert and once using gold card stock without the Merry insert.  They were offset adhered using glue.

While the two adhered die cuts were drying, I dry embossed white card stock using the Holly Flourish embossing folder.  Another white card stock was die cut using the Hemstitch Rectangles (S5-308) The embossed paper was cut to size and then outlined using a gold leafing pen.  It was all mounted onto a red tent fold card using double sided adhesive tape and foam tape. 

The now dry Merry die cuts were mounted using liquid glue on the detailed areas and a small piece of foam tape under the Merry.

A beautiful bulb was created using three of the dies.   It was mounted to the card front using foam tape.  A sweet double green bow was hot glued to the top of the bulb.

The finishing touch was wee gems to the bulb and on the Merry scrolls.
