Verve Visual Sneak Peek

The sneak peeks are starting again at Verve Visual. That means more giveaways at the Verve blog! Here's my first card using Asian Flair, available June 25th. I really like this sophisticated stamp set and can't wait to find some more time for it. So many possibilities!

This bold red, black and white color combo came to mind instantly for me with the thought of an Asian inspired design. I made the gate fold style card with one side slightly larger. That way the flaps meet off center and overlap. The little silver clip on top is just there to hold the card closed. Unless you like it. Then of course it's a Making Memories neutral Cheeky clip and was all part of my plan. ;-) I actually rearranged the alignment of the sentiment a bit, to fit into my circle. So easy to do with clear stamps and markers!

Very sophisticated! I love the fold and the whole design. I was just looking at my page pebbles today, thinking I should get them out and USE them. It's a very neat accent. Great card, Bethany!
