Fanciful Flourishes and God's "Frosting"

Here are a couple more projects using Lizzie Anne Design's Fanciful Flourishes. I am making a bunch of these note cards (4.25" x 5.5") for DH's g'ma for her birthday. She can just write a note and send out. I will include envelopes and postage stamps. I used Kraft cardstock and patterned paper that is from Basic Grey's "Eskimo Kisses" line. It is only 1" so a great way to use up scraps.

I cut vellum to fit this small votive glass (made my own template by rolling and drawing the top and bottom as you need curved template to fit around the glass).Then I use Tombow's Adhesive Removable to tape the template to my vellum and cut.
I arranged lots of the Flourish images on a large clear block and then stamped with Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I used Tombow's MONO Vellum Adhesive to tape the ends of the stamped vellum around the votive glass. This stuff is cool! You can't even see it through the vellum cardstock I used!

Here is a photo of a candle lit. It is much prettier at night.
I don't think anything gets much prettier than this in the winter than to wake up to all the trees frosted! We have lots of trees all around us that make a wonderful windbreak. This was the view ALL day as it was so cold none of it melted. These photos just don't do the beauty justice. Imagine LOTS of sparkly glitter thrown thick on trees. Ü

  1. Great votive idea Debbie! I will have to try the Tombow Vellum adhesive as I haven't found one yet that I "love". The "frosting" on your trees is so pretty too! Too bad that white stuff comes with cold weather though :)
