FLIP With Gratitude

With a new FLIP year (Flourishes Loyalty Incentive Program),
 Flourishes knows our customers will actually “flip” when they see 
the newest offering from Marcella Hawley. This beautiful set, 
called With Gratitude, is Flourishes’ gift to you when you 
make a qualifying FLIP order. Want to see what it takes to

will not be for sale this year—it’s exclusive to the FLIP program.

Isn’t that gorgeous!? Marcella surely has a way with botanicals, 
doesn’t she? Here’s what I came up with for this set. 

I stamped the cone flower image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with these Copic markers: the Lenten Rose Collection and the Fields Collection. Then I cut it out with my Grand Calibur and a Labels Four Nestabilities die. I used my Grand Labels Eleven for the larger scalloped element. See the pink horizontal strip? I stamped the row of thank yous from the set on it twice and tied my ribbon in the center. Love how that turned out! Finally, I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with a small Petite Oval Nestie.
I wanted to use another one of the wonderful sentiments from this set so I dressed up the inside a bit.
And that’s it from me today! Be sure to check out what some of the other design team members have for you!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
