Smile | SSS June Card Kit with Giveaway!

Hello! Today I have a card and video to share using the newly released June 2015 Simon Says Stamp card kit. This kit is so FUN with lot's of bright colours and fun designs!

I decided to focus my card design on some of the patterned papers in the kit to create a fun little summery scene. ;)

I loved the little sky scene that was featured on one of the patterned papers and decided to make that the focal point on the card. I first cut it out and then I also cut out a strip of green patterned paper from the kit that looks like grass. I love the tone on tone detail in this paper.

I cut the green piece the same width as the sky piece and diecut the top of it with the SSS Stitched Slopes to make it look like a hill of grass. I adhered both pieces to a piece of typing paper (so they stayed together) and then I ran them through my diecutting machine with a fishtail banner die.

I adhered an orange patterned paper from the kit onto a white, top-folding card base, added a piece of vellum and then adhered the banner scene directly on top. I also added some sequins to the design since it was very one dimensional.

You can see how I created my card in the video below:
