New Verve!!

Today is the release day for four new sets at Verve Visual! This card features one of the new sets, Asian Flair. As soon as I saw this set, I knew I needed to make a card using red, black, and gold. I did some polished stone using those colours, it's quite a pretty result! Next I stamped the squares, cut those out, then embossed the circles in gold, and popped those out with a 3/4'' circle punch. The card base is textured white paper. I added the sentiment in black on the red, then added in some black ribbon and gold cord. Here's another shot of the card in its entirety. The one reinker I used ended up going a bit purple when I mixed it with the alcohol. So afterwards, I used a bit of black stazon reinker so that black would still be present in the polished stone.
