The lovely floral panel is actually packaging that was included in with the 2 lace trims we received in the May Card Kit, one of which I used here also. They were from Webster's Pages. Does anyone recognize it? I'd buy it in a flash if it comes as a design paper! I just couldn't let it go to waste, so I trimmed it and used it as my main focus here. I placed my sentiment (Simon's Just a Love Note stamp) banner over a shape of similar size that had Webster's logo or a price code in it. I think the blue cardstock that I used for my card base came from the April kit, and the bright green that I framed with came from the January kit, but don't hold me to it! The little white paper roses are from my own stash. I think this will be perfect to send to my Mom or one of my sisters....
I have a couple more cards made using the May Card Kit from Simon Says Stamps. I believe it sold out like its sisters........the papers were lovely soft colors and subtle patterns from GCD, and I let them be the stars on this first card:
I simply made banners from 3 of them, attached them to a dove grey card base, then embossed them with this hearts embossing folder. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Best Mom Ever stamp set in bubble-gum mid-tone ink on cream cardstock, cut it out and popped it above the card.
My next card was fast and easy also, especially since I already had the vase of flowers stamped and colored. It uses the lovely embossed and die-cut panel that was included in the kit.
The pretty vase of flowers from Jane's Doodles Mom's Flowers is a perfect fit inside the circle. I popped the panel above my pink card base, fit in the stamped image, and finished with some dots of Petal Pink liquid pearls.
As you can see, the Card Kits are a fantastic value; each one includes a stamp set and supporting papers and embellishments. Did you know that you could subscribe and never have to worry about them selling out?
Thanks so much for visiting me today!
