Today we are spotlighting the Chevron Love and Heart Quartet Die Set. Knock me silly and then give me dessert! This stamp set is top notch and the most gorgeous sentiments. Love the sentiments, but a super delight was this new jotted heart stamp to go with Verve's Jotted Heart die. Yep, now you've got more reasons to use that fun die. I had to use these sweet Heart Quartet Die Set on the card too. They are like confetti for your cards. Love these spotlights today.
So the quick of my card is using some K and Company Spotted Canary pattern paper as the base on some teal cardstock with a little chocolate paper tucked underneath for some fun. I layered a Verve Scallop Trio Trim die over the Award Banner Trim die from September release.
I stamped my chevron jotted heart on some Basic Grey Neutral pattern paper and cut it out with the Jotted Heart Die and tucked it under a Chevron Love sentiment that is cut out with the largest die from the Banner Bundle Die Set. You'll see this week that my sewing machine was out. :0) So I, stitched a zigzag on the tag and then glued the chevron butterfly from the Chevron Love set. The butterfly was clear embossed on the Sundance cardstock and then sponged over with Real Red, Only Orange and Tempting Turquoise and cut out with the large die from All Aflutter Die set.
Now the Heart Quartet die made it's first pass through my cutting machine on some Chocolate cardstock and popped up on foam adhesive here and there for a flowing fun card. I think that's it for this card. Jam packed with Verve goodness because this set scores big points for playing in the A Cut Above playground with older dies. Love that with Verve. Everything plays so nice with eachother.
