New Stash Thank You Card

Have you checked out the fabulous card kits at Simon Says Stamps?  I’ve started getting them since May.  I love them!  So, I decided to make a ‘Thank You’ card with my new June kit. 

Thank You

I’m so use to creating cards with images and then coloring them in with Copics, so this was really something new for me.  I started off with white card stock, then sponged on distress inks (spun sugar and then tattered roses) by Tim Holtz.  I wanted to keep the center were light.  Then I used one of the stamps that came with the kit, and the tattered roses ink to stamp along the outside of the card stock.  After that, I used the black ink to stamp the image and the sentiment.  Here is a close up.

Thank You Closeup

You can just see the stamping around the edges of the card stock.  I layered everything on grey cardstock, added some ribbon and a bow.  I also added seed beads to the end of the pin.  The heart is a brad.  I love that it looks very rich, and at the same time a simple card.

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy your day!

Marilyn
