Coordinating Card & Envelope + Simon’s Thanks & Leaves Card Kit

Hello everyone! Today is the reveal of Simon Says Stamp’s November 2018 card kit, Thanks and Leaves! I really enjoyed creating with this Fall-inspired kit, which includes stamps, tags, envelopes and even the Tim Holtz Snarky Stickers and Butterfly adornments.

Not only have I put together a tutorial showcasing how I made a coordinating card and envelope set, but I also have a video walking you through all the contents of the kit. You can watch both videos below.

The solid stamps in the Thanks and Leaves set  made for a beautiful, Antique Gold embossed background; I also embossed the greeting with the same color of powder. I love how this color looks against the Neenah Desert Storm cardstock.

Memory Box has a Wrapped Stitch Heart die set, which I used to cut out some hearts to add onto the card.

I also used one of the 4-bar, kraft envelopes included in the kit to create a coordinating envelope. The envelope is what inspired me to make the card at the size that it is; 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. Be sure to watch the video to see the simple steps I took to make this pretty envelope!

I hope that this project inspires you to create with this beautiful, November Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp called, Thanks and Leaves!
