Simon Says Stamp March Kit – Card#3

Hi Everyone, and thanks for joining me for the third card from Simon Says Stamp’s March, 2018, card kit! (You can find card one HERE and card two HERE.) Once again, I can’t tell you how obsessed I am with the stamps from SSS and the Carta Bella paper and stickers.

I used a modified gatefold technique that I usually use in mini albums for the front of this card, and I hid tiny magnets under the paper and behind the ‘live life in full bloom’ sticker sentiment to keep the card closed.

Iniside, I used stamps from SSS Choose Joy and Showers and Flowers. I attempted to watercolor the wellies with Tombow markers. I am not a watercolorer, but do try it once in a while. I adore Debby Hughes’ work, and would love to create some of the gorgeous cards she makes. However, I don’t practice much, and get sidetracked with too many other techniques. ;)- This one came out acceptable. Kind of.

Thanks for stopping by again today! Love and crafty hugs!

Erin

  1. Hello Erin,
    Love the garden boots with flowers. Very talented with the colors and your application of them.
    Your modification of the gatefold technique is one I will remember and use. Thank you for sharing. Your cards are beautiful.
