Grateful Elegance




Here's a quickie thank-you note idea using Verve's new Grateful Elegance stamp set. I love the easy elegance of this scroll background stamp! All I had to do was add some ribbon and brads plus a simple sentiment and the card was finished. The layout comes from Julee Tilman's Meet the Verve Diva sketch challenge. Head over to the Verve Forum this week and get to know Julee! Next Thursday, she'll be drawing one random winner from all the sketch entries, too - winner gets $15 Verve bucks. Hope you can play along!



Stamps: Grateful Elegance (Verve)
Paper: Cranberry Crisp, Going Gray, Basic Black, Naturals White (SU); "Boxer" (Basic Grey)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories: vintage brads, 1/4" circle punch, Cranberry Stitched ribbon (SU!); "Swiss Dots" Cuttlebug folder (Provo Craft); classic and scalloped circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders); black satin ribbon (Offray); paper piercer

beautiful in every way! Although, quick? I dunno it takes me forever to figure out placement and colors and how to get everything just right. I envy you so much if you are able to just whip up these gorgeous creations LOL!

Amy, this is beautiful! I gotta say, I love your style!!
My big 5-0 is on the 1st, and I asked (translation: shamelessly begged) for Nesties from my husband. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
