Hope Your Day is Sweet - Simon Says Stamp February Card Kit

 Good morning! It's the end of the month, so I'm once again late - this time thanks to another trip I took, then the cold I brought home as a souvenir! But, I'm finally popping in to share my first card using the (sort of) NEW February 2022 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit - Sweet Days! This month's kit is full of sweet touches! The included stamp set by the same name has sweet images and sentiments, there is a cute word die, some fun pattern paper, glitter sticker sheets and metallic cardstock, a stencil, and tri blend marker...that's all not to mention the cardstock, envelopes, and more!

I'm sharing a first card that is light, bright, and airy - with a bit of dimension and sparkly shine!

I'll come back to this later - but wanted you to see this fun shine! Have you ever put Glossy Accents over the top of glitter paper? It's such a fun and different look - extra sparkly and shiny!

Okay - back to how I created this card! I started off with a piece of some of the pattern paper in the kit. I die cut it with a Basic Rectangle die to trim it down.

Next, I die cut a window in it with the shadow portion of the Fancy Love die in the kit. I adhered one of the Adhesive Glitter sheets in the kit to white cardstock, and then die cut the main word out of that piece. Then I mounted both pieces with foam adhesive. I love the floating effect this gives to the word in the center - kind of magical!

I heat embossed a sentiment from the stamp set in the kit in white on black cardstock, trimmed it down, and adhered it at the bottom of that panel, tucking a little extra foam under the bottom edge, and using liquid glue to adhere it to the popped up panel. I added a few Pinkfresh glitter drops in aqua to add some sparkle, then coated the glittery word carefully with Glossy Accents, and let it dry thoroughly. So fun!

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

Doesn't that word just look like candy?!? And wouldn't this be a fun card to tuck a little coffee gift card into?
