Welcome to the first day of Flourishes’ February Release Sneaks! Today we’re previewing a brand new set by Marcella Hawley that will fill the gap in many stampers’ arsenals: sympathy cards. I’m sure you’ll reach for this gorgeous calla lily set with it’s comforting sentiments over and over—I know I will.
I stamped my callas on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with these Copic collections:
Spring Greens Collection
Then I fussy cut it out and popped it up on a Spellbinders Picot Edge Circle Nestabilities die cut and added some sweet pearls to each picot.
I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner and tied a ribbon on by punching a slit out of the top fold. Then I popped the focal panel up on foam dots and it was done!
Except for the inside. I stamped another image from the set on the inside along with another sentiment. I chose to color only the ribbon on this image.
So, there you have it—the first sneak of the February release!
Also being released today is February’s 1, 2, 3 Create Kit – Bonjour. It’s available right now.
