I just subscribed to the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit. I am very excited to have a box of crafty stuff show up at my house every month. My first kit is the April 2017 kit. This card was inspired by Heather Ruwe’s card on the inspiration sheet. I love the way it turned out and will be using this layout again.
Size: Vertical top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a panel of white card stock. I used the four mini ink cubes to add strips of color to the panel. It was a straight to paper application. I used the same ink to stamp the strip of solid hearts in each stripe. I added some hearts and the sentiment in black ink. I added some black glitter gel pen and white gel pen to the hearts and sentiment.
I created a card base from some green cardstock I had in my stash. I added some more solid heart strips with the green ink.
I stamped the elephant on white cardstock and used colored pencils to color it in. I fussy cut the elephant out and painted the edges with a black marker. I did cut around the trunk of the elephant so it could hang out over the circle.
I die cut the white card stock with a stitched rectangle and a stitched circle die. I adhered the circle die cut to the card base. I adhered the elephant on the panel and used fun foam to pop the whole panel up.
