Day two of the Flourishes Sneak Peeks. Today the featured set is the Botanical Bookplates Vo. 2. I loved the first one and I have to say that they second set in this series is just as gorgeous as the first.

For my sample I stamped the big Lily of the Valley image in Tuxedo Black Ink on White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box technique. The image was cut down even more on the embossed edge and colored with Copic Markers (T0, T1, T3, YG01, YG03, YG17, B0000, B000). The image was adhered to a piece of cardstock, cut and embossed with the second largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

A piece of vellum cardstock was cut and embossed with a Lattice Motif die. The image ovals were adhered over it with dimensionals. A piece of patterned paper was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and a strip of white cardstock was taped over the paper square. The edges were stitched and ribbon was threaded through the Vellum layer and tied around the paper square. The layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

A sentiment from the set was stamped on a piece of cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the Tailor-Made Classic Tags Template die. The tag was tied on to the bow with a button and embroidery thread.
