New Verve...Comfort and Joy

Welcome to our October 2013 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to preview Verve's newest stamp sets and dies with you! Up until today, the Divas have been shining their Verve spotlights on a different set each day...so glad you stayed tuned for this fun series of inspirational hops... and PRIZES, too! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store tonight, 10/25. This card I made is more into the Christmas spirit...goodness knows that Christmas will be here before you know it! Here's my sample featuring Unto Us and Reindeer Fun Die Set:



I started off by stamping the decorative border from the new Unto Us set and cutting it out with Verve's previously released Classy Label Die. I then stamped the sentiment in the middle and added some liquid pearls. The ribbon is from Verve's newest addition, the Autumn Elements ribbon collection. I also added a reindeer accent at the bottom...which was stamped with cute little reindeer from Unto Us and heat embossed with white embossing powder, then cut out with the new Reindeer Fun die set.
