The Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit hit my doormat yesterday and I had to break into box straight away to get the enclosed Big Birthday Wishes stamp set inky! My youngest is going to a party on Sunday and this set is just perfect for boys cards – fab font, big sentiments to really take centre stage and a few accompanying images to accessorise :D Here’s a look at the kit as a whole with it’s bright card colours, kraft/gold papers, rub ons (both gold and brights), delicious graduated colour washi, gold star brads; yup it’s another jam-packed kit this month!
Despite the hit of pink in this kit, it is also an easy one to adapt for boys. I stamped the ‘Yay!’ in Orange Peel on the white card from the kit, stamped the rest of the sentiment in Smoke underneath and then the balloon in Surf Blue. I drew in the balloon string with a marker and the trimmed the panel with the A2 carved curved edge die so that I could mount the panel on a card base and have some bright patterned paper showing. A few enamel dots and a couple of sequins finished off this super simple card :D
The April Card Kit is available for reserve at the moment – the West Coast dock issues caused a slight delay in some of the kit supplies arriving but shipping of the kit will begin on March 23rd :D You can also get a subscription to the Card Kit and so make sure you get a kit each month :)
