Simon Says Card Kit October 2013 – So Tweet Card

I challenged myself to make at least 3 cards from the monthly card kit.  It was easy with this one because I love Autumn and Squirrels!!!  LOL


I really loved the crisp blue paper with trees byt it begged for a little red cardinal sitting on a branch!   To bring out the red bird I framed the paper with red cardstock.  It just peeks out from the side and frames the little banner!  I used glossy accents on the bird to give it a little depth.

Simon Says 2013 January Card Kit


I received my January Card kit in the mail and just had to play.  So far I just have two cards but working on several more.


















I really like hexagons and the hexagon paper was just too small for a card.  So I used my Papertrey Ink hexagon impression template and cut out the small hexagons from the paper in the kit.

I wanted something with Glitter and glam!  I loved the Swiss dot paper in the kit and wanted to highlight the elegance of the paper

I cut out an opening using Spellbinders Small Labels #4 and laid the paper from the kit underneath.

I edged the opening with my Kyron Gold Leaf pen and added the buttons from the stamp set and a few that I had bought from Joann’s.  Sorry I don’t remember the brand.

I thought the card looked pretty for someone special!!!
