This is a card that is quite different from the cards I usually do but the stamp set came in the last kit from Simon Says Stamp kit and I love it. Its a perfect time to send an encouragement card as so many of us are feeling the stress of what is going on in the world right now.
Here is the card:
This stamp set came in the last Simon Says Stamp kit. It isn’t something I would normally choose, but I love it. Thats the nice thing about kits, you sometimes get something you wouldn’t normally look for and it can expand your style.
This was a fairly simple card. I stamped the image and then colored it with alcohol markers. I cut the layers with Waffle Flowers A2 layer die set and framed them with black cardstock. I used some of the Whimsy stamp rainbow papers that were in the kit to add some color to the card.
For the sentiment I chose one from the stamp set that reads “After the storm comes the rainbow”. I stamped it on some black cardstock with versafine ink and used some of Simon Says Stamp fine detail white embossing powder and dried it with my heat gun.
I really like how it turned out.
Here are some of the supplies I used on this card:
