Hi all and welcome to the final day of Flourishes’ Release Week!


The new Happily Ever After set is the perfect companion set for our new set Summer Blossoms. Here, you have a pint-sized sentiment set that packs some punch when it comes to wishing “The Happy Couple” well! Use it for Anniversary wishes, weddings, bridal showers or even to congratulate a newly engaged couple! It’s a must have set to add to your collection! This set measures 4 by 3″ so it’s a bargain at $8.50!
For my Happily Ever After Sample I stamped a sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag Two die. With the die still on the cardstock, the edges were sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. A corner flourish from Summer Blossoms was stamped over the edges with third generation Vintage Photo ink.

A piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with a Classic Heart die and embossed with the Elegance M-Bossabilities folder.  It was adhered to another piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Classic Scalloped Heart die.  The tag was adhered to the lower right of the heart.

The same corner image from Summer Blossoms that was used to stamp over the tag for texture, was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on white cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (Yellow Flower: Y21, Y23, Y35   Center flower: BG0000, BG000  Leaves: G40, G43, G46). The image was cut out and adhered to the lower right of the tag.

A piece of My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found 2 Breeze paper was adhered over a bigger piece from the same paper pack and cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Square Nestabilities dies. The edges were sanded and stitched. Crochet lace was taped to the edge of the vertical strip and Sheer ribbon was tied around the edge. The bow was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread.

The layers were adhered to the card base, cut and embossed with the smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die out of white cardstock. Rhinestones finish off card.

To make sure all your events are truly memorable, Flourishes has added a do-it-yourself invitation to deck out however you wish! Baby showers, potlucks, bridal showers and more! This blank download allows you to personalize any get-together with that elegant, handmade touch! Created as a part of Flourishes’ Blossom Collection with fonts that match this series of stamps — this invitation blank offers endless opportunities for entertaining in style! Click HERE to see this in the store and CLICK HERE for instructions on how to download this image after your purchase! The tutorial was from a post we featured a while back for our calendar download.

For my sample I printed the invitation on white cardstock and cut and embossed it with the largest Romantic Rectangle die. The booties from Hello Baby were stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of My Mind’s Eye Two Lost & Found 2 Breeze. The booties were shaded with Copic Markers (BG000, BG01) and cut out. They were adhered to a piece of white cardstock cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag One die, which was then adhered to the center of the top of the invite.
