Verve Inspired Sympathy Card

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.
