These cards are created with mostly kit contents, with just a few other simple supplies added in. I really wanted to demonstrate how versatile our Simon kits are and how you can use the contents for maximum creative results!
The first card I made features our Simon exclusive Picture Book Panda die and the super-fun ThermoWeb Flocking Sheets! I love how I could easily make a fuzzy-cute panda in no time at all by adhering the Flocking Sheets to the Stick-It adhesive, also included in the kit!
From the Party Like a Panda stamp set, I selected the disappointed panda for a belated birthday card – the deflated balloon and crushed present make me giggle! I broke out some of my favorite watercolors to color the panda and framed the scene with some of the custom Doodlebug pattern papers in the kit!
Finally, I wanted to use that cute, Picture Book Panda die again; but this time I cut it from the white and black cardstock in the kit! This card features a fun, see-through window design that really carries a lot of punch! I used some of the festive pattern papers for the inside of the card; on the inside, I have added a Simon exclusive Talk Bubble die cut, which is where you can write your message to the recipient. When the card is closed, the speech bubble on the front hides it (which is stamped with a greeting from the Party Like a Panda set). This unique layout is a fun and easy way to change up a typical card design!
I hope you will watch the video below to see how I created each of these cards! Thanks for visiting me today, I will see you again very soon!
