Merry Saturday

Hi friends! Happy Saturday!  I'm popping in with a really quick card using the new Merry & Bright set from Verve.  All the stamps we've been previewing this week are now available in the Verve store!  Woohoo!


For some reason I've been really drawn to white lately.  Stark white.  A few years back I remember desperately trying to find some Christmas designer papers that used cream instead of white, and now it's the opposite.  Everything has that vintage look.  So I decided to see what I could do with just white cardstock for a change.  This is another of those really mailable layouts.  I couldn't resist and added a little extra dimension with the snowflake, but that could easily be kept flat.  The final card size is 4.25" square, so it fits in a standard A2 envelope.

The white panel is embossed with an SU! embossing folder and I stamped the title sentiment from the set in black in the corner.  The medium snowflake from the set is stamped in Patina, then colored in with a Tumbled Glass distress marker and cut out and matted with the Joyful Blooms Die Set.  A black knotted bow keeps things classy, but still flat and I finished with a teeny tiny rhinestone in the center of the snowflake.  I could see doing a whole set of these and just changing up the color of the snowflake with some unexpectedly bright and bold colors.

Well, there's lots to do this morning, including feeding my ravenous little boys, so I'll just leave you with the enabler's list.  Be sure to check out the store to see all the new products!
