Simon's January Card Kit

Happy New Year!  I'm thrilled to be moving into the new year with my favorite kind of card - for Valentine's Day!

My card uses a few of the supplies in the latest Card Kit.  I LOVED this particular floral paper from the Pebbles design papers in the kit, and used that as my inspiration.  I paired it with a sentiment and the tiny hearts in the new stamp set, along with my own stamped roses with die-cut leaves, to mimic the roses in the paper.

supplies: Cotton Candy, Doll Pink, Lipstick Red, and Mint cardstock, floral dp from Pebbles Forever My Always paper pad, sentiment and tiny stamped hearts from new Really Like You stamp set, (all in the kit), along with roses from Roses for You and Partial Cut Leaf dies, Stitched Rectangle die

The background is a very dark brown, and I followed suit, using an Espresso distress ink for my stamping.

Here's what this January Card Kit looks like, and as of this writing it's still available!  Be sure to check out our Gallery for more ideas!

I would have had a really hard time using that background paper on a card just due to its pattern but you pulled it off beautifully. What a gorgeous card!
