Love From Me

Tuesday, January 24, 2017
Hi friends! I'm back again with another card I made with the limited time free digi set from Verve. Since most of the digis I've designed have involved coffee, I decided to keep with tradition and include a couple coffee related images and sentiments.  After all, love and coffee are a perfect combination, don't ya think? {wink}

For my card, I started with the pdf printable of the Love From Me set, and cut the hearts, the love cup and the from me to you sentiment with a stitched circle die.  I colored with Copics and added some Nuvo crystal drops for a glitzy accent.  Next I die cut the Coffee Word Die from early espresso and grabbed a piece of crumb cake cardstock to make the background.  The coffee stain stamp is from the Better With You stamp set and I added just a hint of sponging around the edges.

Handmade card by Julee Tilman using Verve Stamps.

I balanced out the darkness of the coffee word with a panel of espresso below, then tied on a striped bow and added some little dew drops in the corner that I found while ransacking my craft closet for collage supplies for the boys this weekend.  They had a blast making their little art pieces.  I always knew my craft supply collection would come in handy someday!  Definitely worth the 30 minutes of priceless silence this activity created.

If you use the digi, I'd love to see what you create.  Link me up over on this post on the Verve blog and you might win a little Verve, to boot!
