April Diva Dare 2012 - Day 8

Hi Verve fans!  Laurie here, and it's my turn to share with you how I answered this month's Diva Dare!

This month we dare you to make a card, project, layout, or whatever fits your stamping style using this month's theme - All Aboard! It has been Grand Central Station around the Verve nest lately, Julee and Mark have welcomed two beautiful baby boys into their family and have had their hands full! So on that note, we are challenging you to use chipboard, corrugated cardboard, or kraft on your creation or project! We can't wait to see how you answer the dare! Stay tuned to learn how you could win some shiny new Verve!!


For my card, I used both chipboard and kraft cardstock!  I couldn't help myself really...I love both of these items and use them frequently!  :-)  It's been a while since I've created a pocket card, so that's what I did!  I covered the front of my pocket with paper pieced flowers from the Joyful Blooms set (cut out with the Joyful Blooms Die Set).


For the tag insert, I used the Vintage Oval Frame stamp (Cut out with the Vintage Oval Die) to frame the sentiment (also from the Joyful Blooms set).  The sentiment is cut out using one of the dies from the Charming Oval Die Set.

Want to know how you can win some fabulous new VERVE GOODIES?

  1. Play along with us and link up your new All Aboard creation (posted April 20 or later) to the linky widget on THIS POST before 6:00PM MST on Thursday May 3.
