Yay me, I'm so happy to be a part of todays Simon Says Stamp Yay You Release celebration over at the Simon Blog! There are so many wonderful new products in this release, and I am so excited to share the cards I've made with you from the beautiful new Intricate Floral Background Hot foil plate!...
This first card is simply made using the plate, gold foil, and a layered Simon sentiment die. Black, gold, and white are so pretty together, so my thought was, why not hot foil the plate with gold foil on black cardstock, and frame in white with a white sentiment...LOVED!! I simply added the sentiment, popped up on white card, and done...super simple...but loved this simplicity!
Here's a close up...
The second one, I did much the same as the first, but gold on white cardstock...
I used a different sentiment this time, die cut in gold and layered. I framed it in gold and done! Here's a close up...
Then, I thought...hmmmm.....what if I color a white background and the flowers/leaves??...
I colored with markers, it took a bit of time...but it was fun! Hey, coloring is always fun...and relaxing!! I used, yet another Simon Happy Birthday die...die cut and layered in white, thought this one went so well with this version! Here's a close up...
I LOVE the diversity of this plate...there are so many ways to use it...and with hot foil, simple or more involved...the gold foil makes a card SO pretty!!
I had such fun making my cards...my fun is shown above, your fun begins below!
