SSS New Release – SimonSaysLove – Card Inspiration 2

Hello and welcome to another exciting post. Today we are celebrating the new release from Simon Says Stamp – SimonSaysLove. Thank you so much, SSS for sending me a beautiful die – Cupid’s Heart.

I created two samples for SSS FB live, one of which I am shared earlier. Another one is here for you today.

SSS New Release - SimonSaysLove - Card Inspiration 2

 

For this one I cut out a 8.5 x 11 SSS Cotton Candy cardstock into two parts length-wise. Then I scored and folded it from both ends at 2.5″ to create a gatefold card. Next I taped my die on each side making sure to line up the center of the die with the edge of paper and ran it through my Platinum die cutting machine.

I also die cut the same design using one red paper from my stash. I believe this is the one I got for one of my kid’s craft projects :-)

Then came the little-time-consuming-but-fun part – I closed both the gates of the card and carefully adhered each piece through its slot onto the inside of the card. In the center, I adhered the red cut out heart and also foam mounted a sentiment sticker “love”. This sticker came from the Pebbles Inc. Jen Hadfield Heart of Home sticker sheet included in Simon Says Stamp Nov 2017 card kit. SSS New Release - SimonSaysLove - Card Inspiration 2

To make the front of the card more interesting, I stamped the leaf images from SSS Forget Me Not stamp set using Delicata Pink Shimmer ink in two corners. This added a tone-on-tone design with subtle shimmer. I also stamped a couple sentiments from the same set using SSS Hot Lips ink to tie everything together.
