Verve is Buzzing with a New Release

I'm posting a new Verve release card that I did a little sneak on last Saturday. It was so much fun to play along and I'm glad I can keep the Verve posts going a bit longer with some extra projects.

Let's find out how I made this card.

I usually make up a few different colors in card bases and then when I decide on my color choices I grab a base that goes with it. It doesn't always run that smoothly, but it's nice to have them ready when they do.

I used pattern paper from American Crafts' Spring 6 x 6 paper pack. A few scrap pieces of white and green cardstock and got busy with my layout/sketch.

I stamped the sentiment on pattern paper and layered it under a tag made with the new Flourished Tag Die Set. If you look closely it is embossed a few times using the honeycomb die from The Buzz Dies. The bee and second half of the sentiment are stamped on white paper and colored with Copic markers.

The CAS style was too simple for me so I drew a sketchy border around the pattern paper base and then I need more. LOL So I stamped the butterfly from The Buzz set randomly and carefully around my completed card.

To add some bling I glued a row of sequins from the Pastel Sequin Mix. the little butterfly was stamped on the corner of the sentiment tag had a gap showing because of the layers of papers. I just filled it in with my PITT Artist Pen

Such a fun release I'm so blessed to be able to jump in and play as a quest designer for Verve this month. Come back again on Saturday for another Verve easy peasy card!
