Introducing Royal Flourish | Card and Box Ensembles


Glimmeristas, I hope you are ready for more Glimmer Fun!!!  We have a new mini collection we are introducing today called Royal Flourish.   With two card fronts as well as an oval border shape and square border shape - we'll have some stash-worthy things for you to look at.    We thought it would be fun to make a card and a matching box using some of our favorite die sets and the new Royal Flourish Glimmer Plates.  It's easy to do and is a show stopper when we need to give a gift.

Inspiration for Royal Flourish

Have you ever noticed during period dramas like Game of Thrones that the Royalty each have their own insignia and way of writing? It's so cool and really fascinating that these things mattered to them.  There was actually a lot of thought and flair behind the written word.   It’s really no different today; we all have our own flourishes of style that we lay down to call things our own.  It was this spirit of honing a style that Becca said provided the inspiration for Royal Flourish.  Glimmer is such a lovely way to add rich detail and embellishment!
We've been especially loving using borders with glimmer.  For this collection, Becca created two border sets that you can cut with Hemstitch Squares and Hemstitch Ovals.   Card fronts that can take a sentiment seem to be the favorite, so happily there are two details plates that will make lovely frames to your favorite sentiments.

My Projects For Today: 

I'm happy to introduce GLP-129 The Contessa's Seal Panel




                 


With it being Graduation Season, I wanted to make a card, gift box and little gift bag with this fabulous plate. Such a beautiful design. 


I added the panel to the top of the box and folded it down the front and back as well as I cut some pieces and added them along the bottom of the box as well.




Lastly, I made a sweet little gift bag. I used the Favorably Simple Gift Box Dies along with the glimmer plate.
