Verve Release Challenge Number 1
My niece Kaia (pronounced Ky-ah) is turning 1 year old next week, so I decided to use another of the Verve Release Party Challenges to make a card for her. This little girl was premature and had a bit of a rough start to life, but is now doing very well......thank God!!
I started with a light green base, matted with white (pierced of course!!) and then matted with pink that has been embossed with 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder. The large rectangle panel is a piece of Urban Prairie paper by Basic Grey, matted with white and green. The princess is from Lizzie Anne Designs, has been stamped in black and coloured with markers and cut out. It was then stuck onto a Label 4 die cut that had been cut out of white, embossed the edge and sponged some pink onto it while still in the die so that it has a pink background and white edge. The horizontal slot punch was used on the side to add some ribbon and a clear rhinestone. Finally the circle has been stamped from Verve's 'Fairy Tales' set in green and cut out. The '1' has been stamped using the Just Rite Special Occasions Font and the whole circle has been popped up on foam tape.
That's two challenges down and two to go!! :) Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!! :)
