Simon Says: Card and Matching Envelope!

Good morning crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Card and a Matching Envelope! The design team is featuring We R Memory Keepers products, it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

For my card and envelope I chose to use the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and the new Gemstone 3D embossing folders.  I love the 3D embossing folders they offer such great dimension and texture. The envelop punch board is great because when used with heavy weight card stock the weight and sturdiness of the envelope make for very easy mailing and it protects the card.

To pair with these products, I dug into my Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit (there are still some complete kits available) I linked to the kit below and I also provided the separate product links.

I started by ink blending my Picked Raspberry and Abandoned Coral Distress INKS (not Oxide) on my background (I still prefer to blend with the Inks) and sprayed with my Distress Sprayer. Once that was dry, I die cut my Stitched Lawn Fawn heart and embossed the background panel. 

I then stamped my snowperson and coloured with my Copics and fussy cut. I added one of the Pink Pom Poms from the kit (by Darice) and some Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter to the hat.

To stamp my sentiment and snow flakes from the same stamp set, I used a mix of Distress Oxide (I love stamping with these) and some Simon Says Stamp Antique Gold embossing powder.

I placed my panel on the base using Foam tape and added my snow person, some Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles and a mix of Nuvo glitter and crystal drops.

For the envelope, I made an A2 size from heavy weigh card stock, stamped a few snowflakes on the flap and embossed the flap with the same embossing folder.
