With All My Heart

Hi All! Welcome to another project using the November Card Kit by Simon Says Stamp. Today's cards feature the Thankful Heart stamp set and the Floral Frenzy embossing folder, which is included in the kit.

Let's take a look:


For this card, I cut a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch panel from ivory cardstock and embossed it with the Floral Frenzy folder from the Simon Says Stamp kit and the circle embossing diffuser from Close To My Heart. The diffuser allowed me to leave a circular portion of the cardstock flat so that I could stamp my sentiment on it without any trouble.

I stamped the sentiments with Indian Corn Blue (now retired), and layered the "thank you" on scraps of patterned paper from the kit and copper foil vellum from the Rustic Home Fundamentals collection by Close To My Heart. I then popped the layers over some hemp twine from my stash using foam tape. I also added drops of Rose Gold Liquid Pearls to some of the embossed areas for a little extra pizazz. 

I made a second card using Olive ink (retired as well) and changed up the small sentiment to "love you." I then added the panels to Colonial White card bases.

Here's a couple of collages of close-ups for both cards:



And here are the two cards together:


These cards are so simple, just basic stamping and a few scraps. Still, the embossing folder really just takes the whole thing to the next level. 

Stay tuned for a couple more projects that I made with Simon Says Stamp's November kit. Until then, have a fabulously creative day!

  1. I agree! The embossing really does take these sweet cards over the top! Great idea to use the diffuser for the sentiment area. And love the small pop of patterned paper against all the crisp white!
