I'm a bit behind with my Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit Shares this month. They've been sitting here needing photographed for a week now....
Today I'm going to be sharing my favorite card I made with this month's kit:
I think one of the things I love most about this card is that just like yesterday's card share [click HERE for yesterday's post] this card is mostly flat and can easily be sent through the mail.
All of the stamping was done right on the Neenah white cardstock base using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
[side note here: How great are the fun, bright colors of Distress Inks and Distress Stains that Tim has added to his collection of fabulous distress inks? I am a color-loving girl and I can't get enough of these happy colors!]
Here are my favorite and most often used colorful Distress Ink colors (and yes, I have a bit of an addiction with all things in the aqua/teal color family):
I used the heart and the border stamp from this month's stamp set included in the kit to create these "hanging" hearts. I stamped the hearts on each side off the edge. This helps draw the eye across the card plus it doesn't squish all those colorful hearts too close together. It provides much better balance like this.
I used a greeting from one of the exclusive Simon Says Stamp Stamp Sets and stamped it in black along the bottom edge of the card. I think the black greeting gives a nice balance to the white background and colorful stamping.
To give my card a bit of dimension I added simple pearl gemstones and some tiny ribbon bows I made from thin silk ribbon.

And if you just love the stamps (like I do!) and don't want to commit to the whole kit every month, you can buy the stamp set individually HERE. Love that!
