I flexed some time from work and got together w my buddy Claud to stamp this afternoon, where we reviewed how to make these 3D cards. I'd made an egg-shaped one this past weekend in a stampin get-together w friends, and thought this SU DP featuring pears would lend itself nicely to using a pear QuicKutz die I have. It ended up being almost a perfect fit to the pears in the DP - how kewl is that?!
This card's based on another Verve forum sketch - VLVFeb01 - which I just became acquainted with this past week. I'll be a regular follower from now on, that's for sure! For the uninitiated, just a quick "heads up" to let you know that Verve Stamps posts a new challenge each week on their Splitcoaststampers forum. If you upload a sketch for all the challenges for the month you're entered into a drawing for a copy of each stamp set released that next month!
