Simon Says Stamp. DieCember® Release Blog Hop

Hi dear friends!

Thank you for joining our fun! Today is a big day! It’s DieCember release from Simon Says Stamp!

I’m so happy to be a part of the Blog Hop and want to share with you some cards I made using new dies from this release. My cards are very simple and you can easly make the same if you like them.

When I’ve got the parcel with new supplies, I liked this floral border the most. And the idea of such simple greeting card came to me at the same moment.

I just die cut that border from the both sides of the thin cardstock stripe and colored it. I also die cut the sentiment usind Everyday Words On A Line from the new release out of black cardstock  and adhered it onto the stripe.

I created two 5 ¾  x 2 ⅝ card bases and added some shades to the adges using ind and ink blending tool. Then I foam mounted the stripes onto my card bases.

Simon Says Stamp prepared a lot of gifts for you and one of them you can see on the banner. Use code DCBMR27 while purchasing products in SSS shop and you’ll definitely get a mystery gift with any order. The code will expire Sunday, 12/9 at 11:59 pm ET.
