Sip and Savor

I have a few more cards to share from last week's big Verve anniversary release, starting with this sweet one today using  the new Sip and Savor. I was inspired by a local tea room and antique shop -- the historic home it's in, the beautiful, worn, creaky floors, all the lace and china everywhere, and its wonderful, warm, cozy atmosphere.  I tried to capture all of that with the wood paper background (Crate Paper), lace trim and a doily, and lots of distressing. The focal point stack starts with a Verve Curvy Bookplate die-cut, then a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two swirly piece. Behind that is a Spellbinders Labels Sixteen die-cut accented with blue pearls, and at the very back is a paper doily. Zigzag stitching, lace trim,  and crinkled and dyed seam binding (from MemrieMare) complete the look.

We've just released 7 new sets, 4 plain janes and 8 new dies!
