WCMD Greetings

Hi friends!  Happy World Card Making Day!  It's the official start to the holiday crafting season and we've combined our monthly Diva Inspirations Hop with a WCMD celebration hop!!! And what better way to celebrate than a few new Verve stamps?  Yep, that's right we've got a mini release this morning with 5 new plain janes!  Hooray!




My card for the hop uses the new Square Medallion plain jane and I've combined it with a sentiment and the small star (stamped in the center of the medallion) from the Snowflake Splendor set.  The medallion is cut out with the Scalloped Flowers Die and matted on a Nestabilities Scallop Circle.  A few fun scraps from my stash and some thin ribbon and sparkly rhinestones finish it off stylishly. 

I think the layout is a perfect simple design for holiday cards, so I designed a little sketch for you.  Play along for a chance to win our upcoming holiday release!  You've got until the 25th of October to enter, so be sure to carve out a little time to play!  In the meantime, hop on down the blog list and leave a little comment love for the Divas and you might just win some Verve of your very own... to the tune of a $50 gift certificate!  The full hop list, the sketch challenge entry form, the plain jane reveal and all the prize details are over on the Verve Blog today!  Happy hopping!

  7. Your card is so elegant, and I love this sketch. I am only partially through the hop, and the sketch has already been saved to my inspiration file. Have been wanting to use more stamps to create my own backgrounds, and I love the new Plain Janes for that purpose. Happy card making!
