Friday Fun

Hi peeps!  I'm so glad it's Friday!  Today I have a CARS (clean and RELATIVELY simple) Mother's Day card to share with you. using the new set Love Deepens.


I started by gluing a piece of Vintage Springtime paper onto cream cardstock, then running through the Big Shot with the Labels 1 dies.  I then made a coordinating mat from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and stamped the sentiment from Love Deepens in the same color ink.  To add a little interest to the card, I tied a knotted bow of razzleberry taffeta around the label shape, then added a regular bow, a paper flower and a triple pearl stick pin.  The next layer is cream embossed with a Sizzix textured impressions folder and lightly distressed and sponged with Vintage Photo ink.  The card base is punched at the bottom with the Eyelet Border punch and then I accented with some pretty lavender rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

On the Verve front, here are a few little reminders...
