Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit


This month's Card Kit at Simon Says Stamp is a real beauty!  Just look at those luscious colors!  This month there are some 3 x 4 cards from Authentique to match the papers in the kit, and I couldn't resist making my first card using one of them with the papers.

That printed panel is so gorgeous, I simply framed it with a series of the papers and black cardstock that were in the kit, and added nothing else.  I'm leaving it blank for now until it's used, and then I'll add an appropriate sentiment.  

My next card shows the stamps and the die that are in the set.

First I stamped one of the sentiments diagonally across my card front, then die-cut a row of polka dots over and below it.  Next I masked off that area and stamped several of the flowers in Soft Granite and Butter Bar inks.  And lastly I lined the back of the front of the card with the gold shimmering cardstock from the kit; it really does have a lovely shimmer that glows when the card is turned a certain way.

I have no doubt that this kit will sell out like so many of its sisters, so if I were you, I'd grab it while it's still available!
