Verve - Words of Wisdom

Well I guess it took a few days off work for me to crack open my new Verve set "Words of Wisdom" - omg love it!.  I seem to make more and more of these inspiring and encouraging cards lately... maybe I secretly make them for me because I love the messages (and need to hear it).

I wanted to do something soft & pretty and take a break from colouring.  I stamped the sentiment in Color Box frost white onto SU Crumb Cake cardstock and then lightly sponged around the edges.

The lacy edges were added using Spellbinders Classic Edges Two dies & Just Rite coordinating stamps.  Again stamped in white.  Love making different lace borders from these sets.  Endless possibilities.  Added a bit of real lace and of course lots of pearls.  I love the soft & pretty look so much.

I finished the inside with a bit more of the patterned paper & another bit of the "lace paper".  I made up a bunch so I have it on hand for future cards.  8)

Well it's a vacation week for me and it's rainy and gloomy today.  But a rainy gloomy day at home is always better then a rainy gloomy day at work. Am I right?!   Until next time, Carla.

Carla - what a great monochromatic card. The stamped lace adds quite a vintage flavor, don't you think? It's perfect against the Kraft BG.
