The card I made is not my typical ‘style’ of card making. Maybe it’s because I have so few Verve stamps so far, which makes me feel like I need to use my patterned papers more. Or perhaps it’s just that Verve brings out a different kind of style in me. I don’t know. It just feels like the cards I make with my Verve stamps have a different quality to them, for some reason. Whatever it is, I like it!! It’s nice for me to try new styles, especially because I still feel like there are so many styles out there that I admire, but I still feel like I am an insecure beginner in so many ways. It’s fun for me to discover if there are other aspects to MY style after trying new things.
Anyway, here is my card:
The base is a cream cardstock from Xpedx. I covered it with some DP from the DCWV Rustic Stack. I’ve wanted to use them for a while. I arranged them all in place and added some zigzag stitching with my sewing machine.
With the machine out, I added a section of some misc lace trim I found at Wal-Mart, I believe. I’ve been wanting to use this for a while, too. 😉
The sentiment panel was cut with a Nestabilities Labels Eight die and then embossed and stencil sponged before removing it from the die. The sponging ink is ColorBox Old Rose. I used Versamark and a gold embossing powder to heat emboss the quote from the Verve Blessings stamp set. I added three mini pearls for embellishment, then adhered the panel over a strip of moss green 7/8″ grosgrain ribbon down the side.
The butterflies were cut from coordinating embossed and glittered cardstock using the SU! Beautiful Wings embosslit die. I added two pearls to the largest butterfly, then adhered them around the sentiment panel.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. 😉
