Hi friends! Today is the Simon Says Stamp Best Days new release Blog Hop day! This is my first ever blog hop with the team at Simon and I’m really excited to be included with this amazing group of card makers and designers. I’m also excited to have a few of my own new releases included in the big release (see this post for info on those products!)
For my card today, I’m using the Sweet Elephants die set. These two tiny elephants are super cute and as I realized that I had recently forgotten to send a birthday card to my niece, I thought this set would be perfect for creating a simple card to send after the fact. (All card supplies are listed at the end of this post.)
One of the things I strive to do with cards, as in with scrapbooking, is to bring a clean and simple aesthetic to what I create. This card is exactly that minimal feel that I shoot for. I absolutely love the nested oval dies from Gina K Designs (Double Stitched and Single Stitched, that nest together) that I used to ground my little elephant and sentiment. I used a few other sets from my stash for the sentiment, the banner and the hearts to create this card.
Here’s my video of the entire process!
