Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit Light Up Christmas Tree (& GIVEAWAY)

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share a final project featuring the Simon Says Stamp December 2016 Card Kit: Merry and Bright.

The Chibitronics Circuit Stickers Intro Pack included in the Simon Says Stamp December 2016 Card Kit includes one coin battery in it (which I used for my reindeer card). It does, however, include 3 light stickers. Since I only used one for my reindeer card and we had a coin battery kicking around our house I was able to put together this sweet light up Christmas tree card:

Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition 2016 Holiday Card Kit

Hi everyone,

Today is release day for the beautiful Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Holiday Card Kit

Here it is:

Here are the individual components in case you'd like a closer look. Not pictured in the supplies below are: cream embroidery floss, 2 metallic taupe A2 card fronts, white A2 card front, 4 kraft envelopes, and a kraft paper bag.

This kit is loaded with Christmasy goodness! I've made three cards so far and have hardly made a dent in the kit!

Here's what I've created so far:

For this first card I used the Pine Needles Mini Distress Ink with the Tim Holtz Woodland Layering Stencil to create my trees. I then used the top layers of the stencils with Distress Grit Paste to create the snow and sprinkled some of the Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter on top while it was still wet. I added some of the Opaque Matte Texture Paste under the trees with my finger for a snowy horizon.

For the second card I die cut Simon's Retro Deer Die from both the white cardstock piece and one their Kraft Mini Tags and inlayed the white piece into the tag. I cut one the Little B Boxwood Wreaths Mini Stickers so I could make it look like it's hanging around the deer's neck and used some of the Joyful Stickles to give him a red nose. The sentiment was heat embossed with some of the Antique Gold Ultrafine Embossing Powder.

Finally, I created the background of this card from a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Holiday Deco Sheets. I stamped the jolly Santa from Simon's Swell Christmas Stamps on one of the Kraft Mini Tags and outlined him with the Prismacolor White Colored Pencil. I tapped the white pencil crayon onto the Aged Mahogany Mini Distress Ink and coloured his hat, cheeks, and lips. His eyed were coloured in the same way using the Pine Needles Mini Distress Ink. The glittery stickers are from My Mind's Eye Sugar Plum collection and I embellished them with Joyful Stickles.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
