Welcome to the Verve Believe Blog Hop. If you’ve just happened across my blog, you’ll want to start back at the beginning (http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/) and hop your way along. Today we’re hopping for the Cure, sharing projects from a new set Verve just released called Believe. This set was designed in honor of breast cancer awareness, and Verve is donating $10 from the sale of every Believe set to the Susan G Komen For the Cure Foundation. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that each day should be celebrated, each moment cherished, and that every little thing we can do in the fight to find a cure matters.
I decided to keep it sweet and simple with my "Believe" card...I wanted to showcase this beautiful set, not some sort of patterned paper or embellishment. I sponged and pierced the edges of the Pretty In Pink Cardstock base, then stamped the sentiment in Jet Black Staz-On Ink. For the focal panel, I collage-stamped the two ribbons and the smallest flower from the set in Pretty In Pink Classic Ink onto a Whisper White Cardstock. I then cut the panel into 1" squares, sponged the edges, and rearranged them randomly on the Basic Black Cardstock mat. The only embellishments I added were a piece of Black Grosgrain Ribbon and three Black Brads.
Thanks for hopping by! Next up on the hop is…JEN TAPLER. Oh, and we’ve got a special gift hidden along our hop for one lucky commenter, so if you see something you really love, give a little shout out and you just might win a $30 gift certificate to Verve!
