Layered Pattern Paper Cards - Simon Says Stamp November 2020 Card Kit

Good morning! I'm a bit slow sharing my first cards with the BRAND NEW November Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Big Thanks Autumn! This kit is full of beautiful autumn themes and perfect for saying thanks so many ways! The included stamp set by the same name has beautiful fall floral images and sentiments, there is some GORGEOUS pattern paper,  acetate toner sheets and foil, preprinted sentiments, sequins - not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more!

I have two cards to share with you today - mainly featuring some of that gorgeous pattern paper for two different styles of layered cards - one more rustic with distressed paper edges, and one with crisper clean edges and layers.

First up, the more rustic and vintage style one. I fussy cut out that gorgeous floral spray, and trimmed out some elements from the pattern paper to begin with.

I used my Tim Holtz distress tool to rough up the edges of all of them - except the fussy cut florals. This adds some great texture to them!

I adhered them all down, curling up the edges slightly for dimension.

Finished off with a few of the lovely Autumn Mix Sequins in the kit for a bit of sparkle, and a sentiment from the Gratitude Sentiment Strips that I foiled with some of the foil in the kit, and matted with some of the Dark Chocolate cardstock in the kit.

Next up, the card with those cleaner and simpler lines!

I also used lots of elements from the pattern paper, trimmed down and layered together - I even fussy cut out anther flower to tuck in the upper right hand corner.

I used one of the Audrey Blue notecards in the kit, and layered together some white cardstock - one layer with some texture added with Detail Petal Plate - and a bit of vellum over the top of that to keep the pattern from being too busy. I just wanted a bit of texture - not to overwhelm the entire design with too much busyness!

I added all the layers together, using foam adhesive to adhere all the little pattern paper squares for dimension, then added a sentiment - heat embossed in white on some of that Dark Chocolate cardstock, and a few Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins to finish this one off!
