November Diva Dare - Day 11

"Shape Up", November Diva Dare

Hey Verve fans!  Stacey here with my take on the November Diva Dare - Shape Up!  What a fun challenge with endless possibilities!  


What we're daring you to do this month is to create a card or project including a common shape.  For example:  hexagons, chevrons, arrows, triangles, hearts, stars etc.  Lots of fun ways you can go with this dare and we can't wait to see what you create!



Check out ALL the shapes I packed into my card!  Some fabulous Verve Stamps, A Cut Above by Verve Dies and some fabulous patterned paper is all you need to get your card in "shipSHAPE!"  


After layering a few different patterned papers, the "Merry Christmas" sentiment and red snowflake image are from the Holiday Treats stamp set.  The sentiment was stamped in red and die cut with the Tagged Rectangle Die, while the snowflake was also stamped in red and die cut using the Frosty Snowflakes Die Set.  To finish up the card, I added some curly twine and a sprinkling of the Metal Mix Sequins and Pastel Sequin Mix.



Deadline to link your cards is 8PM Mountain on Wednesday, November 27th.  Entries must be new (posted 11/8 or later), include at least one Verve product, include a common shape, and be linked up to the linky widget by 8pm Mountain on 11/27/13. 

During this month's Diva Dare, there are 2 prizes up for grabs!
