Flourishes May Sneak Peek, Day Two


I’m back to show you the second set in
Flourishes May previews. This set is called Father’s Day and is a silhouette set by Lauren Pope.

Fathers Day Graphic

I’m using some Memory Box paper that you can find in the Flourishes store called Valise. I think it’s just perfect for a masculine card.

I stamped the image on Kraft card stock with
Memento Rich Cocoa ink (yes, it’s brown, I promise, although it looks black) and cut it out with a Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities die before sponging the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I popped it up on some patterned paper with a mini library clip attached.

The sentiment was stamped on a
Nested Pennant flag that I made longer by hanging the end over my cutting plate and then cutting it as long as I needed with my paper cutter. Some stitching, twill, and a twine-tied button finish it off.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.
