Wonderful Things (Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit)

Hi Everyone!

I'm back to share another card using the wonderful new Simon Says Stamp May card kit!
Here's another look at the kit:


For today's card I decided to focus on the chipboard pieces and the pocket that came with the kit. You might notice that the pocket on my card looks different than the one pictured above. There are 2 different pockets and it's a surprise as to which one you get. ;)

Here's my card:

I white heat embossed the sentiment and adhered the vellum to the pink cardstock by adding a little glossy accents under the hearts so the adhesive wouldn't show. I used my Inktense watercolor pencils to color the chipboard hearts. I can't believe how vibrantly they colored even on chipboard! I think the envelop would be great for a gift card or for putting strips of paper in that each share one of of the 'many wonderful thing' you're thankful for. :)

Here are the links to all the products I used for today's card. The 1st eight items include products found in this month's kit:


Just a reminder that that last two kits sold out quickly so if you're wanting to get your hands on this one you might to order it soon!

As always, sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp, has given me an extra card kit to give away! Just leave a comment on any of my card kit posts this week for your chance to win! I'll post a winner next week Monday, April 22nd.

Finally, be sure to come back Friday for a little something special. :)

Sarah
