Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit...

Hi folks, yes it's another blog post from me and on a Sunday too. If truth be told, I'm furiously working my way through the list of things to make, frantically trying to catch up, determined to clear the decks so that the Christmas Crafting can begin but I seem to spend more time sitting at the computer, photo editing, writing blog posts and creating product links than I do crafting in the cubbyhole but hey ho, that's life. Today I'm sharing a simple thank you card made with the fabulous November Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp

and at the time of writing this, I believe there are still a few available to buy or you can purchase the individual items from the kit HERE

I scored and folded the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock included the kit to create an A2 card and then trimmed the SSS Ivory Cardstock also from the kit to be slightly smaller. I placed the Ivory panel in my Stamp Platform and placed the SSS Medium White Tag on top, marking around the edges of the tag with pencil.
I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Thanks & Leaves stamp set with Hero Arts Cup 'o Joe Shadow Ink over both surfaces, removed the tag and restamped on the panel. I repositioned the tag on the pencil markings and repeated the process with different leaf images around the edges. I then used smaller leaf images mounted on an acrylic block to fill in the gaps. I used Carved Pumpkin, Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide inks.
I tore a panel of vellum slightly larger than the tag, inked the edges of the panel with Brushed Corduroy Distress Oxide ink using a mini round blending tool.
I tied twine through the tag and fixed it to the panel, popped up on Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive to create dimension
added sequins and matted the panel on to the card blank.
Enjoy what's left of your weekend and I'll see you tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

This is such a cheery card Kath, I love the design, it looks so effective with the vellum behind the tag too! The stamped leaves are beautiful.

The frost last night killed off all the dahlias in the garden, so despite it being a gorgeous sunny, cold day, the garden looks a sorry sight.... :( Hugs, Anne xxx
