Another Verve Card

Another Verve Card I was supposed to submit this card for one of the Verve April 2009 Release challenges in SplitCoastStampers, but I just couldn't make it to the deadline.  DH wanted to go to town and buy some trees, and of course I couldn't say no.  We got 3 Japanese maple trees and 3 white Cherry Blossom (Sakura) trees.  One of the Japanese maple trees will be planted in front of my craft room :)  

Anyhoo, following the second sketch, I was able to make this card and added a twist to it by changing the fold.

I just wanted it to be simple this time, and focused on the smaller details.  I love the piercing on the two corners, I used with Ornaire Piercing Template.  The shape in the middle is Nestabilities Labels Four.  The embossed image is from Verve Artful Elegance set.  The dots in the middle are epoxy stickers.  The edge punch is by Fiskars.

This is how the card opens.  The lilac paper, I cut with Nestabilities Curved Rectangles die.  I had to cut both ends to fit the card.  Then I adhered the cut ends on the top and bottom.  The sentiment is from Verve Beautiful You set, which I touched up with Spica AtYou purple glitter pen.
