A Gift from the Heart



Good morning! I finished these projects just in the nick of time yesterday. They are my final 2 projects for the Verve release week challenges. My card is for VSJan10E, Tosh's (Get in Shape challenge to make any size card except the standard A2). Mine is a 5" square card and I used CPS sketch #149. I kept my card clean and simple to show off the beautiful texture of my white card base. It's called Ruche, and it is described as a  mulberry and cardstock hybrid... I love it! I wasn't exactly sure how well it would take ink, but I was pleasantly surprised that I could stamp my sentiment onto it without any problems. See below for a closer look (you can also click on the photo to enlarge). The sentiment is Verve's Grateful Heart plain jane (single stamp).



My second project is for Sankari's challenge, VSJan10B, which is a 3D challenge to make a Valentine's treat box. I made a Labels 8 box using the above mentioned Tosh's fabulous tutorial here. I finished my box off very simply with a sentiment from Verve's Thankful Hearts.



I put a little bracelet with heart charm inside for my DD, Sabrina. Here's a peek at the inside:
