My Simon Says Stamp November 2017 Card Kit was lost in the mail. Because of this, I haven’t been able to use it as much as I would have liked yet. But the holiday break is coming, and I hope to really play with it then.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I wanted to dry adding white embossing over a color pencil colored image. Once I had the stamp aligned in my MISTI, I decided to make two cards with slightly different colors.
I stamped the floral image on two strips of light grey paper. I used colored pencils to color in both images. Then I re-stamped the images with Versa Mark ink and white heat embossed them. I didn’t do a great job with the embossing, but the overall look is cool.
I created two card bases next; one blue and one purple. I used white pigment ink to stamp the individual floral images all over the card bases.
Then, I got out the die machine. I added some stitching to the edges of each grey panel. I also cut some scalloped borders for each card.
I stamped the rest of the sentiments with gray ink on small strips of white card stock. I adhered these strips to the stamped panels using foam tape.
Lastly, I adhered all the layers to the card bases.
