Verve Easter Challenge - Special Project

Hi All,

There is a project parade over on the Verve blog where you can win stamps if you submit an special Easter project. Well, I wish I could have used Verve stamps for this, but I am still waiting to receive my order from the new release. I made a card and a matching Easter pouch for goodies.

I chose another Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm. This one is called Easter Anya, and she is a digital image (that means she is not a physical stamp - you purchase the file, and then you can print her off and colour her in!). She makes a pretty cute bunny, if you ask me.

As usual, I coloured her with my Copic sketch markers.

The card base is a 5 1/4" square of PTI white CS. The next layer is a 5" square piece of Old Olive. Then, I took a 4 3/4" square piece of DSP from the retired Petals & Paisleys pack from SU, and cut the square on a diagonal, so I could have 2 different patterns showing.

Anya's white panel is 2 1/4" x 3 1/2". That was then mounted onto a 2 3/8" x 4" piece from that DSP pack again. Lastly, that was mounted onto a 2 1/2" x 4 1/8" piece of Old Olive CS. I paper pierced the white and blue layers with my paper piercer and Mat Pack.

The sentiment is a rub-on from from the Chit Chat pack from SU. That was punched out with the Word Window Punch. The ribbon is regular white grosgrain, with one of the ribbon sliders from SU.

For the pouch, I used a 12" x 12" piece of the Petals & Paisleys DSP , and used the Diaper Fold technique. I used the flower from the Verve set Beautiful You, and coloured it with my Copics. I used an alphabet from Close To My Heart to stamp the sentiment. I stuffed a packet of hot chocolate in there for good measure.

Hope you like it, and thanks for stopping by!
