You Are Loved…..


My 2nd card using the February card kit from Simon Says Stamp.  I was thinking this would be a nice Valentine’s card instead of having the usual red colors and hearts.  The only thing on this card not from the kit is the spellbinder die and the gems.  I used the Basic Grey’s Fresh Cut collection paper and rounded the edge using a die and then pleated it.  I love the Tim Holtz linen ribbon that came with the kit, you can pull it apart to make the ribbon wider, fabulous!  As with the other card I used the distress markers directly onto the stamps.  I like the washed out look. 

Supplies: Thinking Of You clear stamps from Simon Says Stamp, Basic Grey paper pad, SSS card stock, distress markers colors are milled lavender, peeled paint, bundled sage and black soot, linen ribbon, spellbinder dies and craft gems.
