Mint Wishes

The sold-out Simon Ltd Edition Holiday Card Kit arrived today, and in between bagging leaves, I dove right into it!  I got it mostly for the pretty patterned papers, and they did not disappoint; I almost don't want to cut into them, so I used them minimally for my first card.


supplies: mint, green, and silver glitter card stock, vellum, pattern plank and mint stripe from Kaisercraft Mint Wishes paper pad, Simon's More Spring Flowers and Yuletide Holiday clear stamps,  Hero Arts Charcoal ink for sentiment, Tim Holtz Mini Holiday Greens, clear sequins

I tried a white on white embossed rose, but in the end, I watercolored that one lightly in Cracked Pistachio distress ink, and added a white-embossed vellum one on top to make it paler.

Here's one more, again using the gorgeous papers, and adding the Joy die from the kit, and my own silver snowflakes and sequins.


The "Merry Christmas" strips are from one of the papers that has 5 or 6 different stripes on it - I just cut it apart and used it to separate the other papers a bit.

Love this kit!!

Wow, I couldn't wait to scroll all the way down to see the entire card when I got this in my email......I saw the mint background then saw the minty rose and the entire card blew my mind. Such pretty colors and great layout!

I can see why you don't want to cut into the papers. Gorgeous cards!
