...Verve Day Thursday

It's officially a "Verve Day Thursday"! From now on, Thursdays are going to be dedicated to ALL THINGS VERVE! I used the new "Enjoy Today Plain Jane" from the March Release, and paired it with patterned papers from the Jackson Lodge paper pad by Collage Press. The Bashful Blue Cardstock base was pierced with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, and Aged Copper Brads were added to pull some of the chocolate hues from the papers and image. The green circular panel was cut out using Circle Nesties, then the edges were pierced using a Circle Piercing Guide, Piercing Pad, and Paper Piercer. The horizontal strips of patterned paper were sewn together using my Janome Sewing Machine, then the panels were attached to the card base using Dimensionals. The focal image was stamped onto PTI White Cardstock, colored with Copic Sketch Markers, then cut out. I added Chocolate Cardstock and White Cardstock mats, then punched the lower edges with the Dotted Wave Edger Punch by EK Success.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you again tomorrow with a project for The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday! Until then...
