I have to be honest with you, I was not a huge fan of the metal embellishments that CTMH has come out with in the past. I LOVED all the ideas in the Idea Books that the art dept. created to showcase the embellishments. BUT when it came time for ME to use them in my art, I just could not get creative enough.
But there is something different and super cool about these Foundry Flourishes in the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book. I love the flowers with the leaves and the frame that comes with it can be used as an accent on a scrapbook page, card or a paper project.
Here is a card that I had actually created for our last unit meeting. I volunteered to come up with projects using the stamp set In the Month of November. This card was created to showcase the stamps in the set.
I think that a lot of times, the embellishments in the Idea Books get overlooked. This is one embellishment that should NOT be overlooked! They are SO reasonable too. You get a package for only $4.95. You get 13 pieces for that price too! Make sure that you check out the Autumn/Winter 2010 Idea Book online. You will find them featured with the Olivia paper pack and also on page 92.
