Simon Says - Friendly Flowers April Card Kit

 Hi my friends, I've been having some fun with the Simon Says Stamp Friendly Flowers April Card Kit.

The kit contains the beautiful Friendly Flowers 6" x 8" stamp set, 12 - gorgeous 6" x 8" papers from Simple Stories Simple Vintage Cottage Fields Collection and 3 sheets of co-ordinating stickers. I am not a fan of stickers BUT decided to challenge myself to see how many cards I could make using them and, at the same time, make a dent in my overflowing box of backgrounds
Here are the first 3 cards I made
Once I had decided on the backgrounds, I chose flower stickers and sentiments from the sheets to match. I trimmed some of the sentiments apart and added Foam Adhesive to the backs.
I fixed the stickers on the panels
added a strip of vellum across the bottom of the second panel to make the sentiment sticker stand out more
and matted the third panel, which was smaller, on to patterned paper from the kit trimmed to 4" x 5.1/4"
I matted all 3 panels on to A2 top-folding card blanks and added heart stickers, covered with Glossy Accents, sentiment and butterfly stickers.






I'll be sharing more cards made using the stickers and papers from the Card Kit next week, in the meantime I'm planning to spend the weekend in the garden. Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.
