It's Not All Black and White

Something Blue

This is the other card I made while I was in Vegas. See that sentiment in the stylish double oval frame? That's an extra little peak for you of Verve Visual's November 10 release, Wonderful Wishes. There are all kinds of great sentiments to fit into a variety of frames. You're going to love it. Both this set and Starlight Starbright are being previewed at the Verve Visual blog all week long. By the way, both Winter Wonder and Seasonal Circles are back in stock as well.


Two corners on the cake panel were cut with my corner rounder. I just cut out the sentiment by hand and added a couple more silver brads to attach it over the ribbon. It needed just a little something in the bottom corner, so I knotted a bit of ribbon and glued it on with MonoMulti. Held like a charm.


It's hard to see in the picture, but the bottom of the card is scalloped with my corner rounder.


The blue papers are from Memory Box (Echo) and the flowered piece is by Basic Grey.


What's In It?
Stamps: Wonderful Wishes (Verve Visual); Piece of Cake (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Echo (Memory Box); Perhaps (Basic Grey); Stamper's Select White (Papertrey Ink); Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Bashful Blue, Creamy Caramel (Stampin' Up!)
Accessories: Ribbon (May Arts); Corner rounder (EK Success); Silver brads (Stampin' Up!)

It's gorgeous! Do you have a punch that fits the oval frame stamp perfectly or do you cut it out by hand?
