New Verve...Peaceful Medallions

Welcome to our July 2014 Spotlight Hops!  We're so excited to share some new Verve with you! The Divas will be spotlighting 3 new sets, a plain jane and a coordinating die set over the next few days, so keep your eyes peeled for some fresh Verve inspiration! Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store on Friday, 7/11. This card I made today is a little more back to my style of card making, compared with yesterday's peek:


I raided my home first aid kit to bring out a bit of gauze...I doused it in some Antique Linen distress ink and attached it to the background paper. It's a subtle effect, but definitely adds the the shabby look. I used a medallion from the Peaceful Medallions set, along with the 'Congrats' sentiment. I fussy cut out the design, distressed the edges and added some Dark Chocolate liquid pearls around the inner perimeter. A crinkly bow, a button, some twine and champagne Zva Creative pearls finish the look.
