New Releases from Verve Visual

Have you dropped in at Verve Visual lately? If not, today would be a great day to do it! Yesterday Julee released four new stamp sets! AND, all stamps are 15% off for the entire month of February! AND there's free shipping over $40. AND there's still time for you to get an entry into the Honored Guest Sketch Challenge Contest. Obviously, great things are going on at Verve. This card features the new set called Happy Thoughts. The set contains the word Happy in two different fonts, along with some mix and match words for quite a few sentiment options. This makes it so easy for a two-toned sentiment like the one I made here.

This card is done on a folded piece of 5.25 inch by 10.5 inch transparency film. All of the layers are sandwiched over the transparency, so that none of the glue shows. I'm including a picture of the inside too, so you can see where I made a place to write your message.Some of the other design elements were done with Webster's Pages Classical Garden Rub-ons. (Just a hint...They're on clearance for 40% off while they last.)
