SSS - Love is Everything

Last week, I got my June Simon Says Stamp card kit, but between work and errands, I didn't really get a chance to play with it much.

This month's kit is themed around flowers and love. The stamp set has adorable modern scribbly flowers, as well as leaves, a wreath and a few curly bits you can use for extra decoration. The sentiments are a mix of Kristina Werner's script hand-writing and tiny typed text. The kit also comes with some wood veneer embellishments, washi tape and enamel dots.

For my card, I wanted to go really simple and use as few non-kit products as possible.

I started by cutting a piece of cardstock from the kit in half, and then scoring it in the middle to create my base. I then cut a piece of flowery patterned paper from the kit to 4x5 1/4 inches and adhered it to the base.

I cut a  strip of polka dot patternet paper and trimmed it to create a banner shape. I adhered it to the left corner of the card. Next, I added a piece of washy tape to the bottom of the panel.

I punched a piece of vanilla card-stock with my EK Success paper punch and stamped a sentiment from the kit stamp set. Using my foam blending tool, I lightly brushed the edges of the sentiment panel with tea dye distress ink. This made the panel pop better against the background, and it tied in the washi tape a bit more.

I decided to put a flower in the upper left corner of the card. I used Hemptique natural hemp cord twine to create some loops, then adhered the wood veneer from the card kit.

As a last touch, I added a medium-sized enamel dot from the kit to the front of the flower and a couple small enamel dots to the washi tape.
