Verve New Release Spotlight: Richly Blessed



I'm back with Day Two of Verve's New Release Spotlights. Today the Divas will be showing two new sets, Richly Blessed and Joy for the Journey, as well as a single image, Vintage Oval Frame. My favorite Christmas cards are those with a clear religious sentiment, so I couldn't wait to ink up Richly Blessed for today's spotlight card.

The set includes a beautiful cross image, which I stamped in Ranger Old Paper Distress Ink onto a pattern from Webster's Pages' Waiting for Santa Petite Papers collection, along with some Scripture and other holiday sentiments. I chose to feature Isaiah 9:6, which I stamped in Stampin' Up's Bravo Burgundy. The frame around the cross and Scripture was done with Stampin Up's Top Note die and a Spellbinders Classic Oval Nestabilities die. Finishing touches are a little crocheted trim, crinkled seam binding, a Webster's Pages sparkler, a punched border, and some gold pearls and cord.

AND ... check out the finished inside:



Oh, how I love this set!

Here's the official link list of today's spotlight hops.
Happy hopping!
