Happy Saturday! I'm stopping by today to share an easy card set I made using the Stitched Rectangles Dies from the new Simon Says Stamp In Stitches release...and to announce the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit winner.
Before I get to that though, I had a question about how I used the foam adhesive to make my shaker elements on THESE cards. I've updated the information at the bottom of that post.
I love making die cut backgrounds but hate when there are little wasted pieces of cardstock. (Yes, I'm THAT crafter, lol). I'm happy to say there was VERY little cardstock wasted in the making of these cards. Yay!
All of the new shaped Stitches dies from Simon come with the dies all still attached to each other so the spacing between them is perfectly straight and even. (I'm very tempted to leave them this way...at least for a while). Because of this, I was able to quickly and easily run 6 different colours of 4.25" by 5.5" cardstock through my diecut machine and end up with all the pieces necessary to make this card set:
I went through all my Simon Says Stamp stamp sets and picked various sentiments that fit nicely in the center rectangle. I white heat embossed the sentiments and assembled the cards starting with the largest diecuts so everything would be perfectly centered.
I love making card sets as hostess gifts and think non-bulky cards work best for these sets. Having all these little rainbows on my table sure cheered me up and I'm planning on making some more in different shades of single colours to create an ombre effect.
Finally, I made a little gift box for the cards using my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and the instructions Jennifer McGuire provides HERE.
Finally, I tied it all up with some baker's twine from The Twinery.
Now on to the winner of the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit. Congratulations to
A classy card, Sarah! I would like to copy it for a masculine BD card, but I think it would make a great feminine card, as well as a teen card! You showcased the SSS kit perfectly! Thanks!
Michele, please email me through my sidebar with your mailing info so I can pass it on to the good folks at Simon Says Stamp.
Thank so much for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!
