As soon as I got my hands on the Simon Says Stamp May 2018 Card, I knew I had to make some cards using the book paper. My grandmother loves to read and receive handmade cards. I used some of the stickers and one other piece of pattern paper from the kit also.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began these cards by cutting the pattern paper into 5.5 inch by 4 inch strips. I saved the pieces I trimmed off as well. I also die cut a small stitched rectangle and stitched circle from some velum.
For card one, I adhered the book paper to a tan card base. I used the half inch by 4 inch strip of orange paper as a shelf. I adhered the velum rectangle to the back of the orange strip. I used some of the rectangle stickers to create “books.” I added a plant sticker to the top of the “book” stack. I added a stamped sentiment to the top of the velum rectangle and the card was complete
For card two, I adhered the orange one to a white card base. I layered the 2 by 5.5 inch strip of book paper down the middle. I added some stickers to the velum circle. I hid some foam tape behind the stickers to adhere the velum circle to the card front.
