Everything previewed this week will be available in the Verve online store Friday night, 10/25.
Well, this probably looks a bit familiar! Oops! In my happy rush to get all most posts done in advance I accidentally switched up my sets on my calendar and posted in the wrong order. Soo… you get a double dose of this card!
Today we are featuring a new Christmas set called Unto Us. This set is absolutely gorgeous and coordinates with the previously released Classy Label Die and the brand new Reindeer Fun die.
Project How To:
For my card I pulled out some left over Authentique Festive paper from last season to use along with a bit of kraft and brown cardstock. The background is embossed with Tim Holtz Rays Texture Fade and then sponged with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink. After I sponged the edges I distressed them then reinked them again with a sponge and I dipped them in a bit of Champagne Recollections Embossing powder and heat embossed the edges. I love how it give this edges a soft gilded look. The bow is made from a bit of ribbon from the Autumn Ribbon Collection from Verve.
