Oh I seriously am having the most fun ever with the May Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp! Soft colours, grey, bit of gold thrown in – heaven! I had to reach for the Congratulations stamp set first with that gorgeous big sentiment but I didn’t want to cover up too much of the luscious pink and gold patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye. Oh the quandary of a crafter LOL, solved by stamping the sentiment in Versamark on a scrap of Paper Vellum and Gold heat embossing before trimming out. Vellum is very forgiving for trimming out and this really didn’t take long. I used some clear foam adhesive to attach the word to a panel of the pink and gold dotted paper with one of the Fancy That Pearl Stickers included in the kit attached top left too. I popped a couple of bits of foam adhesive under the banner so the top it adhered directly to the panel and then the bottom of the banner lifts up. Love adding touches of dimension. Talking of little touches, I also cut a couple of Clustered Leaves from the Paper Vellum and tucked those in too before dotting sequins around.
Having created a little interest in the top left of the card I wanted to balance it with some more of the stickers bottom right. I added the Date sticker and then used the small letter stickers to add an actual date too. I love the sentiments in the stickers and popped the ‘She Said Yes’ one on there too along with a couple more sequins. Finally the panel is mounted on a top folding Cream card base cut from card in the kit.
Here’s a look at the kit as a whole. So much jam-packed into this one including that delicious Pale Blush Pink ink pad which is a firm favourite of mine already :D
