Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit Blog Hop!


Hi everyone! Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit 2015 BLOG HOP!! It's celebration time! The bright and cheerful April Card kit is delightful for celebrating any occasion.   

I've created a birthday card using the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set embossed in Gold to coordinate with the papers in the kit. 


I've used the Simon Says Stamp Balloon Dies to cut out my greeting and cut out a few other colors while I was at it. I used a bit of foam tape to lift up the ballon with the greeting. 


To finish things up I added everything to a top folding white card with a strip of star paper from the kit. Then added twine bows and star brads to the balloons.

GOODY BAG GIVEAWAY!!!
 We will be choosing winners from your comments section to win a Simon Says Stamp goody bag filled with fresh and exciting new products.  The winners will be chosen on Wednesday, April 15th! Good Luck!
