Hi friends! Happy Saturday! I thought I'd pop in with another project I made using the new Verve release. This one combines Wonderful Marvelous, Proverbs 31:25 and the previously released Better Together set.
My inspiration was the Viva la Verve May Week 3 Sketch + Inspiration. I loved the touches of gold in the graphic. And since it's a color I rarely reach for, I challenged myself to incorporate it into my card. I started by painting a little watercolor background. Next I took a piece of vellum and embossed the banners from Wonderful Marvelous down it. I also cut a few stars from vellum using the Starry Die and a large star punch, then used the background strip from Better Together to emboss them in gold. I embossed the same background across the layers of my card, then stamped the Proverbs 31:25 verse on white cardstock and hand trimmed the pennant ends. I finished off with a piece of seam binding from the Spring Fling Ribbon Collection.
Well, that's the skinny on the card. Before I go, just wanted to let you know that along with the new release, Verve has a FREE SHIPPING promotion on US orders over $30 now through Monday, May 26.
