I'm so excited to be able to share with you my very first Verve Sneak Peek. Julee has done it again. She has three gorgeous sets for you this month and some awesome Plain Janes!! My project for today is showcasing the set Kindred Spirits. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. So much so that I completed the inside of the card, and made an envelope to match.
For the card, I started by Inking up the largest Fleur de lis combo image with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, stamping it off once, and then stamping it onto Simply Smooth Cardstock. I stamped the smaller one directly on top of the first with Frayed Burlap again. All the edges are ink distressed with the Frayed Burlap distress ink also. I then cut out the shape with the Oval Nestabilities (Spellbinders), and pierced a background piece with an Ornare Template. The edges were punched with a Fiskars border punch. The swirls were cut with a SU! diecut as was the flower base. The center of the flower was made with a Carl CarlaCraft punch and a Pewter Pearl (Kaisercraft)
For the inside, I used the Fleur de lis strip, stamping it twice, and the Kindred Spirits sentiment was stamped with Espresso (Adirondack Dye Ink). I stamped the larger Fleur de lis in the background with Frayed Burlap, but it's hard to see.
Finally, I stamped the envelope with the frame and the two individual Fleur de lis images and added a couple of Rhinestone Stickers (Kaisercraft and Zva Creative)
That about sums it all up. Head on over to the Verve Blog and check out what the other Divas have come up with for this set. They are fantastic.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Have a fabulous rest of the week!!!
