…Verve Day Mojo Project Parade

Happy Thursday, Verve fans!  I’m here with my creation for this month’s “Something Old, Something New” Project Parade over at the Verve Blog.  I completed the parade on Tuesday of this week, and the Divas really knocked it out of the park for this theme!  I took the theme as a personal challenge to not only combine both old and stamp sets, but to also use old and new patterned papers, cardstocks, embellishments, and techniques.  I hope you enjoy the end result as much as I enjoyed making it!



With Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to take advantage of this month’s theme to create a card using the older sets “Star of Wonder” (sentiment) and “Holly Jolly Christmas” (holly accent) along with one of the newest releases “Fabulous You” (frame).  Julee was kind enough to send me an advanced copy of this week’s Mojo Monday #156 to use as a template for this seasonal delight…thanks so much, Julee!  I dry embossed the Chocolate Cardstock panel using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, then stitched the multiple strips of patterned paper from SU’s retired Holiday Harmony Designer Series Paper pack to the same panel.  I distressed the edges before adding it to the Green Cardstock panel.  The sentiment and frame were stamped onto the same White Cardstock panel, then the holly image was stamped onto a scrap piece of White Cardstock.  After the holly was colored with Copic Sketch Markers, I cut it out and attached it to the sentiment panel using pop dots.  I added some sponging in Chocolate Ink around the edges of the sentiment panel, then accented it with Red Pearls.  After adding the Red Cardstock base the card was complete!

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another TGF Farm Fresh Friday creation!  Until then…
