Flourishes November Preview ~ Day 3




SoDistressedGraphicHere we are at our last day of November Sneak Peek Sets! Do you sometimes look at your blank sheet of card stock and think, “I wish there was a way I could warm it up or add some interest or texture without taking anything away from the main image? Or have you been longing to get your fingers inky and dabble in the mixed media craze? Well, we’re ready for you! Introducing...So Distressed

With Mixed Media all the rage, why not add a background set to your bag of creative tricks? This pattern and background set offers all kinds of images that can be used on their own, or as a way to add "texture" to your cards or creations. The options are endless! How about trying to layer these images for even more fun? This set measures 4" by 6".

Oh my did I ever have a ball working with this set.  The possibilities are endless.  Since I still need a bunch of Gift Card Holders, I decided to use this set to make 5 horizontal holders much like the one I posted 2 days ago.  The measurements and score lines are as follows:  4" x 7"
Score at:  2 1/2" and 5".  It's just that easy.  I've included a close up of each card below.  I just used the 3 same inks on all the cards, and added a sentiment on each using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  The sentiments are from the following stamp sets:  Star of Bethlehem, Winter Berries, and Holiday Topiaries

Mystery-Blogger-GraphicOur team loved getting inky with this clever set, so hop on over for some creative inspiration. And, while you’re hopping remember, we have one more day of….
