Sending Hugs

I have another card to share from the March Simon Says Stamp card kit. I've lost count of how many I have made with it. I have my April and May boxes waiting to be used but I haven't run out of ideas with this one yet. You really get your money's worth! I should just create a layout with the rest of the kits contents so I can move on to the other kits! Anyway, today's card is for the Simon Says Stamp Happy Mail Challenge. Here's my card:

Just think what happy mail this will be when I tuck a gift card in the little bag!

I did break out my sewing machine for this one. I sewed a border on the the green pattern paper as well as around the flower strip that goes down the the center of the card. The little peak of yellow and white stripes is actually the washi tape that came in the kit. I adhered it to a small strip of cardstock for an extra pop of color. Here's a closer look.

You can see from the peak inside the card that I used coordinating inks to stamp the same flower pattern from the bag around my sentiment. (Sorry, but I forgot to take a picture of the inside.)

Cardstock, Pattern Paper, Stamps, Washi Tape, bag and paper clip: Simon Says Stamp March Card Kit;
Inks: Colorbox (brown, white); Papertrey Ink (pink and green seen on inside of card);
Embellishments: twine (The Twinery); wood flower (Melissa Frances)

How cute, and what a great idea for a gift card holder! I love the little wooden button. Such a cheerful card!

What a great looking card....came here by way of the Simon Says Stamp Blog and cards made by the kit of the month. I have had a great time browsing around your site. You do some very pretty projects. I'll be back! Signing up as a new follower. I get the card kits, too and am on my own challenge to use up all the supplies. They are so much fun, aren't they? :)
