A Real Sweet Verve Card


It's Monday, well almost over, but I'm posting another sweet Verve card from the June release. I can't believe June is almost over, but in a sense I understand why it's zoomed by so quickly. It's my families official birthday month! 

We celebrated all month long with three birthday and a Father's Day within a 25 day period. Whew!
We put up a fabric birthday banner that I made a few years ago and instead of taking it down after each birthday we just left it up! 

Along with all those celebrations we also started a new summer tradition of having movie night on our deck once a week. We really hope these hot days coming up now don't squash our new tradition. Last week we watched the original Karate Kid.

So much about our busy summer, lets get to this quick card.


Verve released this Plain Jane along with one other PJ for June. It has a single honeycomb row in the middle that nudges me to use The Buzz Stamp Set, but I kept it put away for this card. 


I painted chalkboard paint onto the pattern paper I used from the same paper pack as my last Verve card here. I stamped the Plain Jane with watermark ink and sprinkled, tapped off and heat embossed Stampendous Detail White Embossing Powder. Once that was dry I sketch around the sentiment with a white PITT Pastell pencil to add a chalky flair to the piece. I matted it with black cardstock after tying a bow with Sunshine ribbon around it, then onto the yellow card base before adding a few pink rhinestone embellishments around the sentiment. That's it!

  1. This is beautiful, Janelle! Love the chalkboard paint and the way you framed it with rhinestones! I totally think birthdays should be a month long event! :)
