Beyond Cards

Here is a little look at some of the new stamps Flourishes will be releasing soon. We've set the table for the holidays and created some quick and easy decorative elements. The table is set with a napkin ring, menu card and gift card holder made with Flourishes Stamps, ribbon and shimmery white paper, Nestabilities die cuts and with SU's beautiful pomegranate decorative paper and ribbon.

The menu was pre-printed on white shimmery paper, lined with a black ruffled edge ribbon, SU pomegranate paper and satin pomegranate ribbon. "Merry Christmas" is from the Flourished Christmas set, stamped in Palette Noir on shimmery white. This and the two other oval cut outs were cut using the Nestabilites Oval set. I love how the ruffled edge ribbon works with the scalloped die cut.

The napkin ring was simple to make. Die cut three circles with the Nestabilites circle set - scalloped and standard using black, white and SU designer paper. Stamp "Joy" from the Flourished Christmas set and emboss the entire circle with clear embossing powder. Attach to a piece of SU pomegranate ribbon and wrap around the napkin.

The angel gift card holder is beautiful and so easy to make. The stamps are from the "Rejoice" set and using the black and pomegranate color combination ties everything together. We'll show you how to make this easy gift card in another post.
