Verve Sneak Peek - Dream Big
It's another day of Verve Sneak Peeks and today I'm sharing a card with you using one of my favorite sets from this release, Dream Big. This set of 18 stamps includes several mix-n-match flowers and stems, leaves, and sentiments in a fabulous Verve font that I absolutely LOVE. I have a feeling this set is going to quickly become a Verve best-seller!!
For my card, I stamped 2 of the 3 flower images (those are the small and medium flowers!) and their coordinating stems in inks to match the Twitterpated (Pebbles) DP, then cut the images out with my hobby knife. I added some old buttons my stash to the flower centers and mounted the flowers on dimensionals on a Kraft circle nestie shape to sort of "frame" them. I have to admit I had a hard time choosing which of the 8 sentiments to use, but finally went with "embrace life". Some Early Espresso grosgrain and yellow pom-pom trim from my stash completed the card. I was really pleased with how this card turned out and can't wait to stamp those flowers in every color of ink I can get my hands on!!!
