A CASE of New Verve

I've got two exciting events to share with you today, not only is it our continuing month-long celebration of 2 years at CASE Study, it's also the first of 9 days of New Verve previews! I've decided to combine my CASE Study card, where our challenge is to CASE another DT member with a sneaky peeks of some Verve. Naturally I would choose to CASE a member who shares a love of the vintage style, so I chose Jean Martin, specifically this card. Jean has such a wonderful sense of color and design and if you take a stroll through her blog, you'll see what incredible creations she makes. Her cards are always well put together and assembled with a touch of vintage loveliness. Here's my CASE of her card:




I'm peeking a new Verve set called With Love. I stamped the bird image on two different pieces of patterned paper, cut them out and attached them to the Curvy Bookplate die, which is a previously released A Cut Above Verve die. However, there is a new die on my card...see that cute little blue banner? That's a brand new die...called Pennant Trim die and I am in love with it! The sentiment is also from the With Love set and to differentiate the die cut from the base of the card I added some Bisque Liquid pearls as a border. The flower arrangement consists of a Wild Orchid flower, flowers cut off a pick, some White Hemp Cord and tulle accents set atop a piece of a doily/lace accent. There are more Verve Divas hopping today, showing off this set and die, plus another set, so you'll definitely want to check them out:
