I received my Holiday Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp and had to play with it right away. I made two quick cards with it. I can’t wait to color the cute Gnome that comes in the stamp set. I am sure I will get to that soon.  For the first one I started by cutting the Mod tree in a 3 1/4″ x 5″ piece of Shallows paper (came in the kit). The edges were sanded and the side and top edge pierced.

Two 3 1/4″ strips of white cardstock were torn, adhered to the lower part of the layer and the edges were topped with Diamond Stickles.  The layers were adhered to the card base with foam adhesive squares, a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock (from kit), folded in half. More white cardstock was cut with the Holiday Shapes die. Three stars were added to the tree and topped with a rhinestones.

A sentiment from Gnome for the Holidays (included in the kit) was stamped in the banner outline from the same set, cut out and adhered under the tree to finish off the card.

For my second card I stamped the label image from Gnome for the Holidays in Jet Black Archival ink on white cardstock, that had been cut with Simon Says Stamps exclusive Apothecary Label dies.  A little silver glitter brad (included in kit) was added on the top of the label.

Part of a Doodlebug Francy Frills cardstock sticker (included in the kit) was adhered to a 1 3/8″ x 5″ piece of Aspen Frost Basic Grey (one sheet of each design included in the kit)  paper strip. Both were adhered to a 3 1/4″ x 5″ piece of the same paper kit. Black Doodlebug Twine (from the November kit) was tied around the layers and topped with a button  before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 3 3/4″ x 11″ piece of white cardstock, folded in half.

Faux stitching was added with a white gel pen. The tiny holly image from Gnome for the Holidays was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (R24, R29, R39, YG93, YG97). The imag was cut out and adhered to the lower right of the label to finish off the card.

There is only a limited amount of those card kits available. I am glad I got mine!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! It’s Friday!!!! Wohoo
Hugs and smiles
