Hello friends! Today I am guesting over on the Simon Says Stamp blog with a metallic home sweet home card featuring the Simon Says Stamp July 2020 Card Kit, Home Sweet Home. This one layer design also featuring a matching stamped and embossed envelope sure to make anyone smile!

I trimmed the Soft Navy Cardstock from the kit to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and placed it in a MISTI. The row of buildings, greeting, and additional images from the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set were lined up and stamped on the background with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder as shown. Some of the images (i.e. the stars and clouds) were moved and stamped multiple times.
An additional sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Love Messages Stamp Set was stamped along the bottom edge of the card as shown. I purposely stamped the row of building approximately 1/4" from the bottom, leaving a small strip perfect for adding a tiny greeting.
The images were watercolored with Gansai Tambi Starry Colors and a medium water brush pen. The paint was allowed to completely air dry.
Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust was splattered over the panel with a small paintbrush to add to the "starry" night sky scene.
The panel was adhered to a white top fold card base.
Additional greetings from the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set were stamped on the Metallic Silver Envelope from the kit using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I love how a little bit of stamping and embossing instantly dresses up the envelope!
