Viva la Verve

Viva la Verve

I can never have enough birthday cards in my stash, so that’s what I made with Viva la Verve sketch #4. I grabbed my Cappella paper pad and found two patterns to use for the background. The Classy Label was also cut out of the patterned paper.

I dry-embossed the pink paper before attaching it to the Always Artichoke lacey square die-cut. The ribbon treatment was created with the use of my favorite strong adhesive: Scor-Tape.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is so lovely, Vera! I really like the way you anchored the gorgeous ribbon treatment with an Antique Brad. :->
