Welcome to the 5th day of the Verve New Release Spotlights where today we are showing and previewing one of the newest features that Verve stamps will be offering: Verve dies!!!! I can't even tell you HOW excited I was to be using the "A Cut Above" Verve Die for the Sweet Scallop tag (this tag die coordinates with two of the tag stamp sets from this month's release). Check out all the details about this newest feature from Julee over at the Verve Stamps Blog!
I was searching for some holiday paper for today's card, when I came across some DP that must be at least 2 years old! I immediately couldn't wait to use these fun colors, the new Scalloped tag and the sentiment: "Happy Holidays" (which is from the stamp set from Verve Merry Wishes - which contain sentiments that you can mix and match up!)
I used one of the Spellbinder's labels and decorated it and added the word "Happy" and then using the Sweet Scalloped tag stamp, I stamped and cut out the image with the Sweet Scalloped die and then stamped it again but this time cut the inside part of the tie out and popped it up on dimensionals after a little sponging :) I Love the way that this Sweet Scalloped die cuts! I seriously had waaaay to much fun making this card - the holiday music was on, I had a cup of fresh homemade chai next to me - and some time before everyone came back from school - talk about stamp therapy - just what the doctor ordered for cold and windy day!!
I used the snowflake from the Glad Tidings stamp set as one of the embellishments for this card. I stamped the medium snowflake in Aquamarine on green paper and then cut it out and and added a little wee button with some gold string in the middle. I also curled the ribbon (with a curling iron and then stuck the curls in place with glue dots) for a fun look after making the card - here is close up:
I simply loved creating this card, I know I am excited to hop on over and check out the amazing creations that the Divas have created for today's hop!!!
