Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit - DIY Die Cut Background (& GIVEAWAY!)

Hi everyone!


I'm back to share a final card using the fabulous Simon Says Stamp February 2016 Card Kit.

For today's card I decided to use the fun little Simon Says Stamp Mini Hearts Outline Dies to create a custom background on a panel of Simon's Black Cardstock that was die cut using the largest of Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies. I die cut a whole lot of of the Mini Hearts Outline shapes from Simon's Cotton Candy Cardstock and adhered them all using Ranger's Multi Medium Matte Adhesive in a Quilled Creations Precision Tip Applicator Bottle. I then filled a Ranger Mini Mister Spray Bottle with water and some Ranger Perfect Pearl Perfect Pearls, shook it up, and spritzed the whole panel to give it some shimmer. Once dry, I adhered the panel to a notecard made from Simon's Black Cardstock using foam tape. I cut out the 'lots of love' sentiment from a piece of the Crate Paper Hello 6x6 Papers and using more foam tape backed it with another piece of patterned paper from the same pad. I adhered this matted panel to the card front using Tombow Xtreme Permanent Adhesive Tape Runner before adding a few of the die cut heart centers.



Here's a picture of the card facing the window so you can see how the Perfect Pearls catches the sun...
