I hope you like the May Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp as I’m on a roll with projects from it and have lots to share over the next few days! The My Mind’s Eye papers in this kit are stunning, although I have great respect for anyone able to photograph the foil trend at the moment LOL it can be tricky to capture how delicious this gold with pink combo is. I wanted to use the paper with the graphic overlapping circles and create a very clean modern card with a matching lined envelope. I started by stamping the wording from the Congratulations stamp set in Versamark on the Cream card and Gold heat embossing it. The cream panel is then matted on the Slate card (keeping the rest for the envelope). I cut a slither of gold card from one of the other papers and adhered that to the centre of the circle paper and wrapped pink chiffon ribbon either side of it before popping the sentiment panel on with foam adhesive. I also popped on one of the hearts from the Stickers included in the kit then everything is mounted on a Cream top folding card base.
For the envelope I cut a 7 ¾ inch square of the Slate card and scored diagonally at 3 ⅛ and 4 ⅛, trimmed the notches out where the scores overlap and rounded one corner. Before folding in and adhering the flaps I added the cream My Mind’s Eye paper with gold confetti dots as a liner. I think a coordinating envelope takes a simple project up a notch don’t you? So there you have part 1 (congratulations card) and today part 2 (Mr & Mrs card) of this wedding set. I’ll be back tomorrow with part 3!
