Verve July Diva Dare

Hi folks,

I'm back today with a card I made for my great Uncle using the July Sketch for You To Try from Jen Del Muro at i{heart}2stamp

The card:

I also did this card for the July Diva Dare over at Verve Stamps. This month's theme is Sentimental About Paper. No stamped images allowed - just sentiments and patterned paper.

Now, if you are a frequent visitor, you know I love my Verve stamps. They make the best sentiment stamps, hands down. You also know I love my patterned papers. In particular, you have seen this paper from Gartner Studios on a LOT of my recent masculine cards. I may have to see if I can find a few more sheets of this to use/hoard. I've also been on a bit of a kraft paper kick lately - probably because it goes so well with these patterned papers.

Oh, and not sure how many of you have noticed but .... the sentiment? It's stamped on wood! Yep, wood. I have some wood veneer business cards that my other half picked up at one of our fave places to shop, Lee Valley Tools, many, many moons ago. I thought that one of them would be make a perfect sentiment panel on this card.

card details:

  • finished size: 4.25 x 5.5 inches
  • stamps: Verve Big Wish
  • patterned papers: Gartner Studios
  • card stock: Recollections Kraft, CTMH Barn Red
