Welcome to the World Card Making Day edition of the Verve Diva Inspirations Hop! Along the hop this month we're debuting FIVE brand new plain janes that just hit the store today, so grab a drink and hop along to see a fresh mix of old and new Verve and maybe even win a prize! You can find out all the prize details and see the full reveal of the new plain janes over on the Verve Blog today. If you are coming over from the amazingly lovely Julee's blog - then you are in the right place and if you just arrived here and want to start in the beginning - you can start with the beautiful Betty's blog!
For my project today, I used the new PJs So Sweet and the Loopy Ribbon stamp set to create a little giftset. I found these two tins in a garage sale (2 for a $1, Score!). They are such a nice size - big and flat and perfect for chocolate bars (that was the first thing that came to mind!! LOL!). I kept the layouts the same for both the card and the tins and layered the sentiment onto a circle punch, EK success punch, Verve dies (Classy Label die, Vintage Oval die, Ribbon Banner Die), Spellbinders and circle punches and then added some embellishments around the sentiment.
I wrapped the burlap ribbon over the tin and with some red line tacky tape. There are these delicious little chocolate bars that fit perfectly into the tin container (I love it when things fit in perfectly!) and I wrapped them inside the tin with some tissue paper.
The card layout was kind of the same as the tin. I stamped the Loopy Ribbon stamp set and colored in the ribbons and cut out the smaller circle and adhered it to a butterfly punch with a brad. I also added a little circle of liquid pearls and some a prima flower to the side and popped up the whole thing with some dimensionals:

Papers: My Mind's Eye
