|Hello Friends, Are you enjoying the Olympics?? Me...I can't get enough!|
This is my second card with Simon Say's Stamps August Card Kit and if you asked me who offers the best card kits for the best value .... I would give the gold to Simon Says Stamp!
This was my first card (note the giveaway too)
|I love paper and this paper pad from "My Mind's Eye" is so pretty with all of the color combos. I decided to make a card with a book mark (from the tag in the card kit) and insert it behind some of the paper that I cut out. More below on that.|
|This is what it looks like without the book mark. I used the stamps from the kit to decorate the "tag" For the side tags on each piece I die cut labels one from Spellbinders.|
|I began by cutting around the edges leaving a slight boarder. This will go front and center on my card.|
|Take a fine tip marker of your choice and trace around the stand out flowers and leaves. |
(my choice is a fine tip Sharpie marker because it doesn't bleed into the paper).
|Now take this white gel pen and have some fun. On most of the flowers & the leaves I added dots or stitching. On the flowers center I used this and once it's dry ... add Glossy Accents on TOP of the white enamel accents.|
Carefully glue your flowers on the edges only so that you have room to slip your book mark behind the flowers and you have a fun book mark card. Please email me if you have any questions.
Have a great weekend and best of luck in the games. Hugs, Kathy
