Viva la Verve – January (Week 1)

January 8, 2011 at 4:58 pm 1 comment

I hadn’t participated in a Viva la Verve challenge for some time. Since it is a new year, I wanted to start playing again. Here is the sketch we had to work with for Week 1:

I’ve been really inspired by all of the cards in the gallery that are predominantly white and that use various Spellbinders or other dies. I thought I’d give this style a go as well. I knew I wanted to use some Cuttlebug EF’s as well and since there were four panels in the sketch, I used four different folders. Here is my card:

Here is how the card came together:
Card Stock – 110 lb. White (Strathmore), Basic Black
Ink – Momento Tuxedo Black
Stamp – Beautiful You (Verve)
Accessories – CB EF’s (Swiss Dots, Fleurs de Lis, D’Vine Swirl, Vintage Wallpaer [SU]), Spellbinders Nestie’s and Fancy Tags, MS pine punch, SU Birds & Blooms and Little Leaves Sizzlits Dies, black self-adhesive rhinestones, dimensionals

I hope you like it! Thanks for taking a look.
