Simon Says Stamp December 2012 Card Kit & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I got a sweet little package in the mail last week from Simon Says Stamp with their December Card Kit inside. This month's kit is FABULOUS! Take a look:


I've been having such a great time creating with this kit. The patterned papers are GORGEOUS! I love the wooden 'Merry' piece, the holly, and yummy May Arts ribbon (which you won't see on any of my cards this week because I'm hoarding it. Hee hee.). ;)

Here's my first card:


I think it's pretty self-explanatory. I'll just note that I cut the 'B' and 'E' out of one of the patterned papers from the kit to add to the 'Merry' sentiment. (Do feel free to email me if you ever have any questions about the cards I share). :) And don't you just love the patterned paper background?!?! I definitely let some of the gorgeous papers take center stage this week.

Sweet Heidi (owner of Simon Says Stamp) has generously given me the go a head to give away one of these fabulous kits on my blog this week. Yay! I'll be sharing the rest of my December Card Kit
cards Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week. Be sure to leave comments this week for your chance to win! I'll announce a winner Monday December 3rd.

Here's what I used for today's card. Noticed that many of the items from the kit can also be purchased individually:


Thanks for stopping by!
Sarah

Great card Sarah. That patterned paper is gorgeous, but would totally intimidate me! Love how you mixed up the papers and let them shine. And the wooden "Merry" sentiment is perfect. Pops right off the card.

This is such a gorgeous card and what a great kit! Love how you put those papers together, I wouldn't have known where to start! I especially like how you highlighted the edge of the banner diecut.
