I have a video below taking a look at what’s included in the Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit and creating this card and gift box duo in super quick time using the kit patterned papers and stickers. I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
I can’t believe how long it’s been since I posted a video to my YouTube channel! I’ve been filming videos for Simon Says Stamp, Online Card Classes, Altenew etc and hadn’t appreciated that it was so long since I’d posted one myself. Well, I’ve made a commitment to turn the camera on more often. That being said, it probably won’t mean you’ll be flooded with videos from me, but one every now and then might pop up. With a view to getting more videos up, some of them might be less than perfect – the autumn has arrived in Scotland and with that, I’m now faced with 6 months of battling the poor light. The colour cast on the video and photos from the rainy day I filmed makes me cringe, but a colour cast video is better than no video!
I’m a slow card maker, enjoying my watercolouring and pushing bits of paper around, deciding what to put where. However, it was truly liberating to sit down with the November Card Kit and put this card and gift box together. I think it took me less than half an hour – the matching papers and stickers make it so easy to compile quick projects.
I like to add dimension to my cards and so I negated the adhesive on the back of the stickers with an EK Success Powder Tool and brush and then added foam adhesive to the back. I think the added dimension allows these stickers to take centre stage rather than blending into the patterned papers.
When I love a range of patterned papers, I’m always inspired to make matching gift packaging. I cut a pillow box from the lovely script and gold leaf paper, using strong double sided adhesive to keep it together. I then added another collage of stickers with foam adhesive and more of the same sequins to tie to the colours of the pillow box to the card.
These stickers are so pretty and very versatile too, many I think would make great accents on a wedding card for example.
