Verve New Release Spotlight - Glad Tidings

Hey there! I'm back from vacation and super excited to jump right in and play with new Verve!! Today is the 4th day of New Release Spotlights and the Divas are sharing creations using the new Glad Tidings stamp set that will release on Friday!!

My MoJo seems to still be on vacation, but I did manage to create at least one card that I LOVE since I returned and I'm happy to share it today!!


I used some yummy new October Afternoon DP I picked up on the mainland while I was traveling and created a large medallion thing, adding some silver glitter to the outer edge for a little bling. I stamped the wreath image from Glad Tidings on some vanilla cardstock and colored in with Copics, adding a little stickles to the berries. I glued some stitched trim (after tearing off some of the tissue paper edging it because it was just too much) to the wreath circle panel and then the stamped sentiment on top. But my favorite touch? Those clear embossed snowflakes on the card base - those are also from the Glad Tidings set! I just love how they really finish the card! There are a few other touches that are self explanatory I think (scallop border, stitching, etc).

Be sure to join us in the Verve Forum this Friday, Oct 29 at 9 PM Eastern Time for our Release Party! And if you missed the previous 3 days' worth of Spotlights, head on over to the Verve Blog and get hopping!!

Oh Jen, this card is so pretty and all the work that you put into it. The medallion is so pretty. This would be great to display as part of winter season decorations. Maybe make it as an easel card or maybe an ornament? Oh, now you have me wanting to try to make this. Thank you for the inspiration.
