I was organizing my crafting supplies and came across the unopened Verve Classy Label Die. It's times like these that I realize I have hoarding issues with craft supplies. Anyway, this is my first Verve die and I LOVE it! It comes with this great alignment tool which came in VERY handy when I was working on a card for one of digital design teams that will be posted later this month. I used it today to make this sympathy card.
I stamped the die cut with the text from from the PTI Background Basics: Text Style stamp set in SU crumb cake ink. The sentiment is from the PTI 2011 Anniversary Stamp set called Botanical Silhouettes. I stamped it in Momento tuxedo black onto PTI kraft CS. I stamped the flowers from the Verve Hope Blooms stamp set on to PTI lavender moon, PTI sweet blush, and SU pretty in pink CS. I was shooting for a very subtle grandient look. I added some glossy accents to the centers of the flowers. I die cut the leaves from the SU Little Leaves Sizzlet. Finally, I added some pearls to balance the card. I do like how it all pops off the PTI black CS which pops off the white card base.
