Anni-VERVE-sary Sketch #9
Just popin' in to say ...... hmmmm that I am still having fun playing the Verve Stamps Anni-VERVE-sary 12 days of sketches. My card today is for sketch #9 ... wow have I really being playing this for 9 days already.
I am still trying to use different companies for each card so today I selected some stamps from Darcies Rubber Stamps ... I just love their cute little bears. I stamped the bear in the popcorn bowl twice on white card and once on wild wasabi card and cut out the bowl from the wasabi card and the paws and popcorn word from the while and layered them onto the green bowl.
The scallop layer was created using my rectangle nestabilities ... cutting two rectangles and joining to get the size I needed for my image. The wasabi panel on the left of my card was embossing using the houndstooth cuttlebug embossing folder and then I sponged over the raised areas with wild wasabi SU ink.
Inside the card I have stamped a verse that says: "Just popin' in to say....." I will probably add the words happy birthday or whatever when I know who and why I am giving this card to.
