Simon Says Stamp | November 2017 Card Kit – 4 Cards

Hello, friends! It’s the 14th of the month and it means it’s time for new card kit from Simon Says Stamp (more about the kit and kit subscription below)! This kit has a mix of beautiful Gold Foiled papers and stickers as well as some stunning gold leaves that will have you making gorgeous cards in no time.

I made 4 cards using just the papers and stickers (I didn’t even open my stamp set and coordinating die – I’m saving these for later!).

All of the projects I am sharing today are A2 cards. I started working on these by picking out a few sheets of patterned paper from my kit and cutting it to either 4 x 5 1/4″ or 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″. I also utilised the leftover pieces of paper and turned them into vertical strips or cute banners for my cards.

I adhered my 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ panels and used foam adhesive for the smaller, 4 x 5 1/4″ panels. Next, I started looking at the stickers and picked a few that I liked. I played a bit with the placement of the images, added a few extras to some to create pretty little clusters.

Once I was happy with the arrangements I used foam adhesive to pop some of the stickers up on my card, I love to use foam adhesive as it allows the light to pass in between the popped up element and the background creating shadows.

I also used gold metallic leaves from my kit and foam mounted those on some of the cards to complete the clusters. These leaves are a fabulous addition – they are much larger than traditional sequins, yet aren’t too big to make the project look cluttered.

I paired my cards with Soft Blue envelopes from Simon and mailed them off to a few friends!

    1. Wow, some stunning cards Yana!! This is another amazing kit!! I’ve been feeling like I need to stop my subscription as money is feeling a little tight right now but THIS IS A CLASSY KIT!! So I guess I’ll go another month, lol.

    1. ✨It’s so nice to have a few cards made without a dye cut machine. I haven’t budgeted yet for it so I love your options for those of us that don’t have one yet.
