Let's Connect Blog Hop!

I'm joining a number of uber talented artists, today, to celebrate Simon Says Stamp's newest release, Let's Connect with a blog hop at the Simon Blog!  Connecting with others is so important in life, and during a season like we are living in, cards are an especially perfect way to connect!!  This release is filled with some fun, some pretty, some cool, but everything wonderful, in the way of stamps dies, and lots more, to make connecting to others so easy!!  
I have used the new Love Tokens stamp/die set to make three slim line cards filled with rainbows of love...
  I could not get away from the thought of rainbows and slim line cards for these love tokens, so all three show you different ways I stamped the tokens and three different layouts of them.  I opted to put hearts in the centers of the tokens, because they fit so perfectly and, they're love tokens, right?!  But, you could easily put the "mom", "dad", "you",..in the centers if you deided to make cards that are for particular people.
  The first one I stamped the "friend" circle for the last token. All the tokens and hearts are layered, the first one, the white panels are popped up over the black panel.  I paired each of the cards with one of the new Simon Slim Line envelopes...thnis card, a black envelope.  Here's a close up of the card... 

   The second card... 
The white panels are popped up on either side of the tokens, like the first.  Here's a close up...

The third one, a birthday card...
I stamped the tokens in seven different colors of ink and used white hearts for the centers.  I cut squares like the colors of the tokens, and put black strips on either side of the squares. I paired this card with one of the new shiny silver envelopes...thought it perfect for a birthday!!   Here's a close up of the card..
OK...my fun is above, your fun is below!
