I recently got the new Simon Says Stamp December card kit in the mail and couldn’t wait to play with it. I had missed the deadline of the latest CAS(E) this sketch, but I wanted to create a card with it anyway. It definitely works for the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge, because the current one is anything goes! You could win a $50 shopping spree if you enter!!! And with me being broke because I ordered a new camera, 2 lenses, wireless memory card and kids presents on Black Friday, that would be wonderful!

I started by cutting the right side of a 3″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock (from kit) with the Simon Says Falling Stars die. Packing tape was adhered behind the stars and Sterling Glitter was rubbed over it.  A sentiment from Merry Everything stamp set (included in kit) was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the right side of the cardstock piece.

The card base is a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock (included in kit) folded in half. A 2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Pink Paislee Sidewalk patterned paper (included in kit) was taped to the lower half of the card base and silver cord was tied around the card base. A wooden button (included in the kit) was adhered to the left hand side of the white layer to finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! I know mine will be! My new camera is scheduled to arrive today!!!
Hugs and smiles

  16. Wonderful card, Beate! As others have commented before – that is a great tip to use the tape behind the stars to add glitter!

  17. Those tiny star holes are awesome, very clever.

  18. Love your card but I have that die and it leaves an impression of the irregular edges of the die on my card stock every time. I don’t know why they didn’t make it a solid plate with the stars as cutting surfaces instead of trimming the metal around the outsides of the stars. That’s what causes the impression. I will be returning it if they don’t charge me the 20% restocking fee.

  19. simply fabulous! love the falling stars and the pops of red from the patterned paper. super card, Beate! hope you have a wonderful weekend! =)
