This Makes Me Happy

Morning, all! Last week, Verve released a whole bunch of new products...stamps, dies and luscious seam binding! I had made a bunch of cards for the release and I found this one tucked away on my I thought I would show it today:

This design really ended up being so simple (for me, anyway). I ran the Havrerutor - bs paper through my Big Kick sandwiched in an inked-up embossing folder to get that mottled design. I simply stitched a panel of Lejas cafe paper to that base and added the sentiment piece...which consist of a Fancy Tags Three and an oval Nestability. The inside is sponged and perimeter dotted with Lavender Lace Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is from Verve recently released Remember This set. Details include a strip of antique lace and pearls, a seam binding bow, tulle accents a paper flower and a decorative stick pin. Oh, and I see the tiniest hemp bow peeking out, too. :)

Thanks for sharing a part of your day with me!

  1. Just gorgeous! I feel like I say that with every card you make. That stitched panel is beautiful as is the row of lace and pearls. Beautifully scripted sentiment too.

  2. You are rocking the purple these days, Andrea. Lovely fancy frame around the sentiment and love the piercing you added.

  3. Am loving the lilac you've used. As ever another beautiful card!

  4. So gorgeous! This made me chuckle, though.... "This design really ended up being so simple (for me, anyway)"
