Pink Snow Much Thanks - Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit

 Good morning! Since I was traveling again when my kit arrived, then arrived home to the bustle of Christmas preparation, I'm finally just popping in to share my first card using the (fairly new!) January 2022 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Snow Love! This month's kit is all about the wintery snowflakes, with lots of fun embellishments! The included stamp set by the same name has some punny snow sentiments and some lovely snowflake images, a gorgeous and intricate snowflake die, there is a pack of lovely color blend cardstock, a full size Pawsitively Saturated ink pad, some sparkly glitter paper, metal embellishments, Glossy Accents and water brush...that's all not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more!

I have a bright and bold snowflake card to share today - and I love that the colors are a bit different than you would expect!

I had this idea to cut out negative spaces from the the pretty Color Blend cardstock in the kit using the included Aidan snowflake die. I forgot that it didn't add the details of the snowflakes until I actually cut one out - duh! But I was committed at this point, and didn't want to waste the paper. So I finished cutting the partial snowflakes out to create the design.

Then, I die cut more snowflakes from white cardstock to set INTO the negative spaces! Way easier than adding all those little negative pieces from the pink ones. I definitely do NOT have the patience for that! I just adhered them with tiny dots of liquid glue in the centers, leaving the edges of the snowflakes to float free for dimension.

I added a sentiment from the included stamp set, heat embossed in white on black cardstock, and trimmed down to a strip, then each word cut apart.

Finished off with some sparkly Iridescent Color Drops from Pinkfresh Studio!

Not wanting to waste it, I used one of those snowflakes (the whole one - haha!) to embellish the envelope. I added the Christmas Shape seal to the center as well to make it extra fancy! It isn't adhered down yet - since obviously the card isn't in the envelope. :)

Here is a closer look at the entire kit contents - you can see it all HERE:

This would be so easy to create in all those lovely colors in the kit - I just didn't have time to do those all yet!
