Holiday Topiaries

Welcome to Day 2 of our fabulous September release week at Flourishes!  Today both of our Friends of Flourishes Team and our Design Team will be showcasing a wonderful new stamp set created by our beloved artist Marcella Hawley.  Marcella has packed this beautiful 4×6 stamp set called “Holiday Topiaries” with an array of beautiful holiday decorated greenery and 3 seasonal sentiments to match their holiday vibe.  This sweet holiday stamp set will surely make an appearance on your homemade cards, handmade gifts, tags and more this season!



For my card today, I followed along with the Timeless Tuesday challenge, which is to emboss.  The red vertical panel is embossed with an embossing folder, then I took my Tim Holtz sanding block and roughed up the raised edges to add texture.
