Cup of Life
I've secretly been wishing for coffee and tea images all dressed up in Verve style, so I was thrilled when I saw the new Cup of Life (tea) and Delightful & Delicious (coffee) sets. Some of the Divas, myself included, are showing peeks of these sets over on the Verve blog today, so be sure to head that way!
For my project, I made a gift set that includes a box to hold loose tea and a coordinating card. Here's a closer look at the box:
To make this, I dismantled a box I already had on hand, intending to use it as a template, but it pretty much ended up working out to be a variation of the 2-5-7-10 box (a tall, skinny box with the front and back pinched together at the top - follow the link for directions).
The card was so fun to make! Here's a closer look:
I made the tea cup using different Spellbinders dies. The bowl part of the cup is a partial circle, the pedestal is the very tip top of a Labels 4 die, and the handle is from the Flourish Accents Shapeabilities. The tea bag tag and the steam rising from the cup were made with images from Cup of Life.
The grand finale of all the Anni-VERVE-sary fun, Verve's official Release Party, is TONIGHT from 8-10 pm in the Verve Forum. We'll be revealing the full sets, showing more projects, chatting, and announcing the winners of all the giveaways we've been doing this week. It's sure to be a fun time - hope you can pop in!
In the meantime, have a fantastic Friday!
