Verve Spotlight Hop Day 2 ~ Love Notes

Woo-Hoo!! It's day two of the Verve spotlight hop, and we're focusing on the set called Love Notes!! I tell ya, this set is chalk full of fabulous fonted sentiments, and two...count them...two images with dies to match!! I chose to use the heart image and coordinating Jotted Heart die for my card today. I also used three of the included sentiments and hearts. Sweet!! I used a Martha Stewart Border and Corner punch to frame the hearts, added some silver cording, rhinestones, and a bit of sewing.



For the hearts I used Viva Decor Transparent Gel and pink glitter. The border around the hearts was blinged up a bit with my Quickie Glue pen and some Transparent Glitter. I also added Frosted Lace Stickles to some of the lacy border flowers.

eta: The card measures 4 1/4"x8 1/8" and to make the lacy border I started with a 4x8 piece of cs.

This Friday, January 7, Verve is releasing some fabulous new sets and dies! To countdown to the release, we’re putting on a series of mini blog hops Tuesday through Thursday of this week to preview the new sets! And because a new release is something to celebrate, we’ve hidden a prize on one of the participating blogs each day!
