I'm back with another of the cards I made using the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the month for May, which is called Play!
This is such a fun, boy-themed kit, and its so easy to put together some really cool cards.
Here's mine for today
I took the Simon Says Stamp Stencil STARS AND DOTS and instead of using it as a stencil, I used it as an embossing 'folder'. I ran it through my Big Shot, with a piece of the white cardstock that came in the kit, and one of these embossing mats (instead of using two cutting plates like I'd do for diecutting, I used one cutting plate, and one mat, with the cardstock and the stencil in between).
This gave a really cool raised effect, you can see above.
Next I added some patterned striped paper to the bottom third of the cardstock, and rounded the edges.
After stamping 'thanks' and 'dude' in Memento ink, I coloured them with Copics, making the blue fade into the green. When that was dry I added some stickles to the letters.
I then diecut the sentiment out using a circle die, and added it onto a pinked-edged circle that I'd diecut out of the red cardstock that came in the kit. I popped that onto the card front using dimensional adhesive. I wanted this to 'slip' off the edge of the card, so I cut the side of it straight, lined up with the edge of the card.
Finally I adhered everything down onto some of the lovely navy cardstock that came in the kit and I was done!
This card was SO quick and easy to make.
I hope I've inspried you to get crafty! The May Card Kit is still available--Go grab one!
See you again soon!
