Welcome to the first ever official Anni-VERVE-sary Blog Hop. Verve turns two today and we’re celebrating with a hop, hop, hop! The party kicked off over on the Verve blog, so if you’ve just happened along, be sure to hop on over there to start from the beginning! And to make this party a real shindig, there’s a mystery jackpot hidden at one of the stops along the hop. One lucky commenter on that blog will win Verve’s entire August release! But of course, it wouldn’t be a mystery if you knew which blog, would it? So if you’re feeling the love, give a little shout out to the bloggers in the hop and you just might have a reason to jump for joy!
I used Verve's Grateful Elegance set for this card. The base of the card is SU! Basic Gray cardstock and the patterned paper is also SU! Under the patterned paper is a layer of shimmery white paper I picked up at Archiver's and punched with the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch.The flowers are stamped on the shimmery paper in SU! Basic Gray ink. I cut them out and added some Liquid Pearls to the center of each flower. Popped them up on dimensionals and added some ribbon to match. Lastly I stamped the sentiment in SU! White Craft ink and after it was dry I went over it lightly with a glitter pen to make it sparkle a tiny bit.
This card was ridiculously hard to photograph! I hope with my lengthy explanation you get an idea of what it looks like in real life. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by! Now it’s time to hop on over to Susan’s blog(www.susiestampalot.blogspot.com), for a little more Verve-y goodness.
