How Wonderful Life Is

Here's my card for this week's Viva la Verve sketch challenge.  I kept things neutral here with a pop of color and a touch of sparkle from metallic accents.

How Wonderful Life Is card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps
I built my design on a pale gray card base covered with a panel of darker gray paper with a gold triangle pattern.  The long fishtail tag sentiment strip was creatively cut from pale gray cardstock using a combination of tag and fishtail flag dies.  After stamping the long tag with a sentiment from Verve's Wonderful Marvelous set in gray pigment ink, I topped it with a pretty silvery gray bow tied with my Bow Easy.  A gold half circle die cut was adhered to the cardfront, tucking the edge underneath the side of the tag.  I accented the sentiment with a trio of hearts cut with the Heart Quartet die.

Materials Used:
Wonderful Marvelous stamp set, Heart Quartet die (Verve Stamps); Memento Luxe Gray Flannel ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Grout Gray and Steel Grey cardstock, Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax and Traditional Tag Stax dies (My Favorite Things); Real Red cardstock (Stampin' Up!); gold paper, silver satin ribbon (Target); Be Bold Be Bright 6x6 paper pad (The Paper Studio); circle die (Spellbinders); Bow Easy; foam tape


  1. Love the card Lori and that sentiment rocks on both the card and in the song! LOL

  2. Your color scheme is amazing! Looks like you had lots of fun creating this!

  3. I love this so much! The perfect colors and the sweetest sentiment.
