Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit! (& GIVEAWAY)

Hi everyone!

Welcome back! Today I'm sharing a card made using the Simon Says Stamp April 2013 Card Kit (Everyday Happy).

*Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of the Month APRIL 2013 EVERYDAY HAPPY

This month's kit is FABULOUS! I LOVE the blue/yellow/grey color combination! The stamp set ROCKS! The envelopes are so fun!

Here's my first card using one of the large envelopes for my card front and some of the fun striped enamel pieces that come with the kit. I finished it off with a great sentiment from the stamp set.

I ran the the envelop through my die cut machine with a Simon Says Stamp heart (linked below) and it only cut through the one side of the envelop. I popped the heart out and replaced it with the same one in yellow.

**Note: Be sure to only run the bottom through the machine so you don't damage the envelope's eyelets like I sort of did. ;) **

Supplies used:


Unfortunately this month's kit has already sold out BUT if you comment on any of my 3 April card kit posts by midnight EST on Monday April 8th you could still win one! :) I'm posting today, Thursday, and Friday and will be back next Tuesday, April 9th with a final card to share using the card kit and a card kit winner to announce. :) Big thanks to sweet Heidi, owner of SimonSaysStamp.com. for providing these giveaways each month. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
