Hey Flourishes fans! It’s Meredith with you this month, and I am so excited to be hosting the last Beautiful World Tour of the year! Why, you ask? Because it’s Christmas time, which just happens to be my absolute favourite time of the year! This month, I took a cue from something a lot of people associate with Canada, and chose the theme “White as Snow” to challenge the team. The irony of this theme is that the part of Canada that Naomi and I live in experiences very little snow, particularly this time of year – it’s more of a New Year treat for us, usually! I say that, but our temperatures are dipping down these days, so you never know – we might get a Christmas surprise!
So, this theme is very open to interpretation, of course! When I first thought of it, I decided I would do a white-on-white card. But then when I sat down to do it, I went a completely different direction!
I first stamped my holly from the Naturally Merry set with Momento Tuxedo ink, and then coloured them. Then I stamped some snowflakes onto the background using the Handmade Snowflakes set. Finally, I stamped my sentiment from Winter Berries, before I inked my edges. Once the card was assembled, I used a brush on snow product that I got from the craft store, and applied snow to my holly. Once I liked how it looked, I sprinkled it with glitter and let it dry!
Your next destination on today’s tour is…….Northern Ireland!!!
