leafy flourish

Welcome to day 1 of the Sweet ‘n Sassy January feature Blog Hops!

Today we’re featuring Korin’s awesome new set called Leafy Flourish Background & More.  These flourishes are beautiful when used with a variety of coloring mediums (as you will see with the DT examples) but for my card today, I chose to simply stamp flourishes in black on white cardstock.

I then added a butterfly and sentiment from Majestic Monarchs.  The butterfly was diecut with the new matching Monarch dies.  A little foam tape under each wing helped to give it dimension.

The banner below shows a sneak of another card I made with the Leafy Flourish Background.  Check back tomorrow for the full card which also uses another set just released!

Check out more samples made by our DT on the Sweet ‘n Sassy blog.
