Verve Nov. Spotlight Hop ~ Day 4

Welcome to our final Holiday Spotlight Hop! Last night we released 2 new stamp sets, 5 plain janes and 6 dies to coordinate with new and old Verve holiday sets! All of the new products we've been showcasing this week are available now in the Verve store!


For my card, today, I wanted to stray away from the traditional Christmas colors that I've been using so much lately. So I made a pink Christmas card. I also decided to try my hand at making a dimensional tree. I've been seeing so many 3-D trees and ornaments out there this year. I've made a few ornaments in years past, but I've never made a tree, and the new Verve tree diecut in the Winter Fun die set is perfect for just that. I just diecut 5 trees, folded them in half, and attached one tree side to the next tree, and so on. I also ink distressed the edges with Victorian Velvet and Brushed Corduroy Ranger Distress Ink, and added some Frosted Lace stickles to the edges. The sentiment is from the new set Bright Spirits.

Here's a close-up of the tree and stickles.


That about sums it all up for today. Be sure to leave a little comment love as you take one last stroll through the Diva and Guest Diva blogs. One lucky commenter from today's hop will win the ENTIRE Release! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize details and deadlines.
