Some Flourishes Christmas....

Hey there!!  Here with two cards for two Flourishes challenges.   Timeless Tuesday.... a fun sketch provided by the super talented Silke!!    And the Flourishes Christmas Spirit challenge.  Both cards are a bit on the "plainy janey" side.   The Christmas Spirit challenge this month is to use Santa in some form on your project.   For my super simple card I used the santa ornament from the Holiday Sparkle set.   I stamped the image on some Eclipse tape and then trimmed him out to create a mask.  I cut a piece of Rustic Cream cardstock to the size I wanted and stamped the image in Cherry Cobbler ink on it and then covered it with the mask.  I then stamped the pine bough over the mask using Old Olive ink.   I distressed the edges of the stamped piece and matted it with Old Olive cardstock that had the edges distressed as well.  Some Diamond Stickles were added along with a bow tied from twine. 




The second card is for the Timeless Tuesday challenge.  I stamped the rose image from the set Petals and Peace on white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink and then colored it with Copics (sorry... forgot to write down what colors I used).  I then diecut the image using the matching Flourishes/Spellbinder die Classic Keyhole.  The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Jovial 6x6 pad.  I combined it with some red burlap ribbon for a... well... interesting look!   I think I will add a sentiment before sending it out as the card looks a bit plain without one.



Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, Rustic Cream; SU! Cherry Cobbler & Old Olive; Stamps:  Flourishes; Ink:  Memento & Stampin Up!; Red Burlap Ribbon; Twine; Flourishes Classic Keyhole die; Diamond Stickles
