Ready for another peek at the new Verve? Today I'm showing a card made with Forever in Our Hearts, a beautiful sympathy set done in true Verve style. I honestly wish I could tell you you'll never need this set, but the truth is, this is a must-have set more than most others. Why? Because when bad things happen and we find ourselves at a loss for words, a good sympathy set is truly invaluable. The imagery in Forever in Our Hearts is peaceful and the sentiments heartfelt, making those difficult sympathy cards at least a little bit easier.
For my card, I've chosen a soothing blue-green-brown color scheme and kept the overall design clean and simple. The tree is stamped in brown pigment ink and clear embossed. I added just a few extras to enhance the overall design: some scoring, pleated satin ribbon, pearls, and some pretty scallops on the sentiment and along the bottom border.
Remember to check out the Verve Stamps blog today to see more peeks of this set and to enter for your chance to win one of your own. And remember, tonight is our Release Party, beginning at 9 pm EST. The sets will be available for purchase at 10:30 pm EST.
I have a second card to share today, too. Michelle Rodgers (owner of Stamper's Dream) is having a birthday today! Happy Birthday Michelle! I know she loves Penny Black images, so Cheesecake Party seemed perfect for her birthday wishes. Stop by her blog and leave her some birthday love!!
