Hi, everyone, and welcome to Flourishes Friday Focus! Today we’re focusing on Patriotism On Parade—one of my very favorite Flourishes sets! I decided to make an invitation with mine—would this be great for a July 4th get together? I really love this!
The bunting images are from Patriotism On Parade, of course, and I added the lemonade image from On the Porch to finish it off. Both images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Classic White card stock, sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and colored with Copic markers from these collections:
Then I cut the lemonade image out with my Grand Calibur and Standard Circle Nestabilities. The sentiment was stamped on a Nested Pennant flag and popped up on foam.
For the inside, I printed off the Blossom Collection Invitation Blank and stamped the little parade from Patriotism On Parade at the top. It’s all ready to be filled in and mailed :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the Flourishes team has to show you:

I also have a sad announcement to make. This is my last post as a Flourishes Senior Design Team member. Life is hectic and I needed to step back a little. HOWEVER. I won’t be TOO far away. I’ll be doing a couple posts for Flourishes each month for a brand new feature that starts next week and I hope to see you back for that! Thanks for all the sweet, sweet comments over these last months—every one has been so very appreciated.
