3 Halloween Gift Bags featuring Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition Halloween Card Kit

Hi friends. I made some cute gift bags with the Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp Home Sweet Haunted Home Halloween Card Kit. It comes with lots of goodies you can use to decorate the gift bags! These were all very easy to make. Here’s how I made them.

The Kit includes:

For the first bag, I stenciled the background with the NEW Exclusive Halloween Candy stencils set. I used Tim Holtz Crackling Campfire, Mowed Lawn, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Inks and Lawn Fawn YETI Pigment Ink.

Then added a piece of pattern paper from the Carta Bella Hocus Pocus 6×6 inch paper pack measuring 2-1/2 tall x 7-1/2 wide” to the top of the bag. I added a trim with the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Black Tinsel.

I used one of the cut aparts from the Carta Bella Hocus Pocus 6×6 inch paper pack on the front as well as die cut the witch hat from using Simon Says Stamp 100lb Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock and Simon Says Stamp 6 x 6 Plum Glitter Cardstock. I added some stitching to the hat with a White Gel Pen. I added one of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween Mini Flair buttons.

I covered one of the American Crafts 1.5 inch Kraft circle tags with a piece of pattern paper from the Carta Bella Hocus Pocus 6×6 inch paper pack. I cut it using a 2-inch punch. Then stamped a sentiment from the NEW Exclusive Home Sweet Haunted Home clear stamp set onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I finished the bag by adding some shimmer to the hat with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen and orange and white twine.


For the second bag, I stamped the images from the NEW Exclusive Home Sweet Haunted Home clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Then colored them with Prismacolor Pencils.

Then added Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fringe and a piece of pattern paper from the Carta Bella Hocus Pocus 6×6 inch paper pack measuring 1/2 tall x 7-1/2 wide” to the top edge of the bag. I stamped a sentiment from NEW Exclusive Home Sweet Haunted Home clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto one of the round kraft tags and added some black twine.


For the third bag, I sprayed it with the Tim Holtz Ranger Mica Stain in Harvest Moon. Then added black splatters with Tim Holtz BLACK SOOT Distress Spray Stain. I cut out one of the cut aparts from the Carta Bella Hocus Pocus 6×6 inch paper pack then cut a mat for it from Simon Says Stamp Black Glitter Cardstock measuring 3-1/2 x 4-1/2″.

I added some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fringe to the bottom edge of the bag. And then added Candy Corn Repeats Stickers all around the image.

I cut a 1.5 inch circle from the Simon Says Stamp 100lb Burnt Orange 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the NEW Exclusive Home Sweet Haunted Home clear stamp set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. And adhered it to one of the kraft tags. Finally I added some natural twine.

For all the above bags, you can just decorate one side or do both sides if you like. I added the trim all the way around on some of the bags.

Embossed Background, Halloween, Halloween

Creating a Dimensional Halloween Card featuring Honey Bee Stamps

Hi friends. A quick way to create a dimensional background with little effort is to use an embossing folder. We all have a bunch of embossing folders we bought when it was all the rage to emboss everything and now they sit in a drawer or craft room shelf collecting dust. Am I right?!? Come on, you know it’s true??? LOL Well thankfully they are coming back in fashion and there are so many techniques you can do with them. Today we are keeping it simple — just some ink and a blender. No fancy tools needed either.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut a piece measuring 4 x 5-1/4″ and embossed with the Stampin’ Up! Cobwebs 3D Embossing Folder (retired); any spiderweb embossing folder will work here.

I used mostly Seedless Preserves and Villainous Poison Distress Oxide Inks to color the background. Then lightly went over the raised cobwebs with some Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water on the background to distress it further.

I stamped the all the images from the Honey Bee Stamps Pumpkin Patch Stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Midnight Ink and heat set with Clear Embossing Powder. Then colored the pumpkin with Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress Oxide Inks. I colored the leaves with Twisted Citron, Rustic Wilderness, and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks. I used Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink for the flowers.

I stamped the ghost and bat images from Lawn Fawn Happy Haunting stampset and colored them with Copic Markers. I used C00, 0 and R20 for the ghosts. And then diecut them with the coordinating dies.

I stamped the sentiment from Honey Bee Stamps Boo 3×4 Stamp Set onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Midnight Ink and die cut the ‘boo’ from Simon Says Stamp Cardstock 100# Black 8-1/2 x 11″ Cardstock 3x with the Honey Bee Boo Dies. I finished it off by adding some glitter with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Sparkle Pen.

On the inside of the card, I stamped a sentiment from Queen and Company Halloween Hoopla Kit with with Midnight Ink and added an extra ghost.

Pattern Paper vs. Ink Blending (feat. Lawn Fawn Strawberry Dies)

Hi friends. I saw a video by Nicol Spohr comparing these two techniques with Easter Cards and I thought it would be cute to try it with the strawberry dies from Lawn Fawn.

For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 4-3/4″ x 6″ and a piece of Doodlebug CUTE AND CRAFTY 12×12 Inch Petite Print Assortment Paper Pack cut to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4″ for the top panel. To seperate the two papers I added Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers in Lilac Mirror.

I diecut the bowl, strawberries, and leaves from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Strawberry Patch Die Cuts and Lawn Fawn Outside In Stitched Strawberry Die Cuts. Then used distress oxide inks to color all the pieces. I used Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks for the strawberry fronts and sprayed some water on them with a Distress Sprayer bottle, Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink for the strawberry backs, Black Soot Distress Ink for the eyes and mouth, Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink for the cheeks, Peeled Paint and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Inks for the leaves, Broken China Distress Oxide Ink for the bowl, Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick and Tumbled Glass for the flowers.

After I adhered all the images to the card, I stamped a bee and a bee trail onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock from the Simon Says Clear Stamps BEE YOURSELF Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used Y13, Y17 & Y18, N5 & N8, R20, BG000 & 0. I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped a sentiment from Lawn Fawn HOW YOU BEAN STRAWBERRIES ADD-ON Clear Stamps and Dies onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Ink and cut it to 3/8 x 2-7/8″.

I finished it off by adding some highlights to the strawberries with a White Gel Pen and Tonic Ruby Slipper Nuvo Glitter Drops to the white flowers and Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 5″ and a piece of 1-3/16 x 5″ of Doodlebug CUTE AND CRAFTY 12×12 Inch Petite Print Assortment Paper Pack. Then diecut the word ‘happy’ from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies (retired) and colored it with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink to create an ombre effect. I stamped a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn How You Bean? Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink. I also added a small strawberry to the bottom.

Dimensions


For the second card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 7 x10″ and scored at 5″ to create the card base and another cut to 4-3/4 x 6″, which I inked with Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink and sprayed some water on them with a Distress Sprayer bottle. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack to 4-3/4 x 6-3/4″ for the top panel. To seperate the two papers I added Love From Lizi Pin Stripe Peel-Off Stickers – Gold Mirror Moondust.

I diecut the bowl, strawberries, and flowers from Doodlebug CUTE AND CRAFTY 12×12 Inch Petite Print Assortment Paper Pack, the eyes, mouth and flower centers from Simon Says Stamp 100# Black Cardstock, the leaves from Authentique 6 x 6 Emerald Papers (retired) and the cheeks from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock.

Then I used distress oxide inks to color the strawberry fronts, the bowl and the leaves to add some dimension. I used Tim Holtz Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink for the strawberry fronts, Spun Sugar Distress Oxide Ink for the cheeks, Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide Ink for the leaves, Broken China Distress Oxide Ink for the bowl.

After I adhered all the images to the card, again I stamped a bee and a bee trail onto a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock from the Simon Says Clear Stamps BEE YOURSELF Stampset with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I used Y13, Y17 & Y18, N5 & N8, R20, BG000 & 0. I popped him up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used the same sentiment as the previous card and cut it to 3/8 x 2-7/8″. I finished off the card by adding some highlights to the strawberries with a White Gel Pen and Tonic Ruby Slipper Nuvo Glitter Drops to the white flowers and Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 5″ and diecut the word ‘happy’ from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Honey Bee Stamps Donut Worry Dies (retired) and colored it with Worn Lipstick and Candied Apple Distress Oxide Inks to create an ombre effect.

I Cut Apart Stamped Images to Make Them Fit My Cards! OMG!

Mother’s Day Cards featuring the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy Stampset and Lawn Fawn Giant Sentiments

Hi friends. If you want to combine a large sentiment like the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Mother’s Day Die and a stamped image like floral wreath from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset but they don’t necessarily fit on the card together? Well, you can make a larger card right?!? Yes, but if you don’t want to do that you can also cut apart your stamped images. What? OMG No! If this sounds horrifying to you, you’re not alone. But I really like this wreath and obsessed with the Lawn Fawn Giant sentiment dies lately and wanted to combine them. The only solution is to cut the wreath apart. And I’m glad I did.

For the first card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I cut another piece to 4 x 5-1/4″ and embossed it with the Darice Wire Fence Embossing Folder.

I stamped the wreath from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used YG17, YG25 and YG67 for the leaves and stems; R81, R83, & R85, Y17, Y18,BG11 & BG32, YR12, YR16, & YR09 for the flowers. I diecut it using the coordinating dies. Then cut the wreath in half and eventually further cut it apart.

I diecut the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack as well as two more times from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Mother’s Day Die. I stacked and adhered them together before adding to my card.

I stamped the wreath from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used YG17, YG25 and YG67 for the leaves and stems; R81, R83, & R85, Y17, Y18,BG11 & BG32, YR12, YR16, & YR09 for the flowers. I diecut it using the coordinating dies. Then cut the wreath in half and eventually further cut it apart.

I adhered the parts of the wreath around the sentiment using some Stampin Dimensionals to pop some of it up. I finished off the card by adding some Nuvo Drops in Ivory Shell.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of the same pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 4-1/4″.

Dimensions


For the second card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I also cut a piece of Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ for the top panel.

I diecut the sentiment 3x from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with the Lawn Fawn Giant Happy Mother’s Day Die. for the top one I used Catherine Pooler It’s A Girl Ink to create a gradient then adhered all 3 diecuts together, creating a very dimensional sentiment.

I stamped the individual flowers from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy stampset onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the images with Copic Markers. I used YG17, YG25 and YG67 for the leaves and stems; RV21, RV14, & RV29 for the tulips; B0000, B01, B02 & Y13, Y06, Y13 & Y18 for the flowers. I diecut it using the coordinating dies. I popped up some of the flowers with some Stampin Dimensionals.

I finished off the card by splatters with White Acrylic Paint and some faux stitching with a White Gel Pen. I also added some shimmer to the sentiment diecut with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.

On the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of the same pattern paper from the Lawn Fawn GOTTA HAVE GINGHAM RAINBOW 6 x 6 Collection Pack cut to 1 x 4-1/4″ and some of the extra tulips I had stamped and colored.

Create a Foiled Background Using Stencils

Hi friends. Here’s a cute and easy card featuring the Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp EASTER JOY 2022 Card Kit. I created the background using a foiling technique. Really quick and easy.

I let it dry completely for a few hours then ran the panel through my laminator with Therm O Web Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil Deco Foil. Once completely cooled I used distress inks to color the eggs using the solid stencil layer.

I used Tim Holtz Spun Sugar, Abandoned Coral, Mustard Seed, Speckled Egg, Stormy Sky, Dusty Concord Distress Inks. I adhered the panel to a piece of Therm O Web Gina K Designs Glimmering Gold Fancy Foil Deco Foil cut to 4 x 5-1/4″ and then onto a piece of Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6 x 6 Paper Pad cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″.

I should mention that because I used distress inks to color my eggs the modeling paste will absorb some of that ink and not remain pure white.

I fussycut the eggs but before adding them to the card, I cut a piece of from the sheet of 8.5 x 11 inch Simple Foundations translucent Vellum Paper which I cut to 2-7/8 x 8-1/4″. For the sentiment I cut out strips from the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips REVERSE EASTER WISHES.

On the inside of the card I kept it simple, I added a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips EASTER WISHES with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and some leftover eggs.

For the third card, I started by cutting a piece the piece of 1 sheet Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Cotton Candy in half (5-1/2 x 8-1/2″) and scored at 4-1/4″ to make a two card bases. I’ll set one aside for now. I also cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 4 x 5-1/4” which I inked with Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink.

I stamped the Some Bunny Loves You sentiment from the from the Simon Says Stamp Somebunny Loves You 3×4 inch clear stamp onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and die cut it with the Simon Says Stamp Somebunny Loves You coordinating die set.

I die cut the grass from Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Green Apple with the Lawn Fawn Hillside Grassy Border and the eggs from the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using the Simon Says Stamp Large Easter Basket die set.

I popped up the sentiment and the grass with 3M Foam Tape and finished it off by adding some Nuvo Fresh Snowfall Glitter Drops.

On the inside of the card I adhered a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb Cardstock, measuring 4 x 5-1/4″ and just added a sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips Easter Wishes and some extra die cut eggs.

For the fourth Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create a card base. I die cut a panel from one of the pattern papers in the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using the the Catherine Pooler Scallops and Dots Dies and cut out a window with the egg die from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set.

I added another piece of pattern paper from the Echo Park My Favorite Easter 6×6 inch paper using behind the window. I stamped a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink and cut it with the coordinating dies (not included in the kit). I added a bunny and some carrots from the Doodlebug Mini Icons Easter Express Stickers. I finished it off by adding ribbon from Tim Holtz Velvet Ribbons.

On the inside of the card I added a sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips Easter Wishes, a 1 inch strip of pattern paper of which I die cut the edge with Catherine Pooler Scallops and Dots Dies and some stickers from the Doodlebug Mini Icons Easter Express Stickers.

For the fifth card, I decided to do two versions of this just to see the different results I would achieve using acetate versus vellum with Copic Markers.

I used the other half of the Simon Says Stamp 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Green Apple and Cotton Candy which I had cut to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card bases. Then I cut a piece of Neenah 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock in Desert Storm to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ and another to 4 x 5-1/4″.

I stamped the flowers from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set all over the backgrounds, using Versamark Ink on one and Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on the other panel. Then die cut a window from the center of both using the egg included in the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy Wafer Dies.

I stamped the egg flower image from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto a piece Acetate and a piece of the 8.5 x 11 inch Simple Foundations translucent Vellum Paper larger than my window with Tsukineko Stazon Midi Jet Black Ink. I colored both with Copic Markers.

For the acetate piece, I used YG25 + G09 for the greenery; BV08 + V17 and RV19 + RV55 for the tulips; BG02 + BG05, YR04 + YR09 and Y17 for the flowers; BG02 + BG05 and RV19, BV08 + V17 and Y17 for the eggs.

For the vellum piece, I used YG25 + YG67 for the greenery; R32+ R37 for the tulips; BG02 + BG15, Y13 + Y18, BG01 + BG02 for the flowers; Y13 + Y18, R32+ R37, YR14 + YR16, BG01 + BG02 for the eggs.

I stamped two different sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set onto Stampin’ Up! Basic Black 8-1/2″ X 11″ Cardstock with Versamark Ink and used WOW OPAQUE BRIGHT WHITE Super Fine Embossing Powder and popped them up with 3M Foam Tape.

I finished off the cards by adding some Nuvo Drops in Bottle Green, Duck Egg Blue and Rosewater to one and Crushed Grape Gloss and Orange Marmalade to the other.

On the insides of the cards I adhered a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb Cardstock, measuring 4 x 5-1/4″ and stamped a sentiment and a flower from Simon Says Stamp Easter Joy 6×8 inch clear stamp set with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink.

Hello friends. This little llama found his luck at the end of the rainbow! With this card I created some layers with stencils and stamps. It’s easy to do this by masking off areas. Keep reading to see how I did this…

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. Then cut another panel to 4 x 5-1/4″. I rounded the corners on both using We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper, 0.25″ & 0.5.

For the background, I stamped a rainbow using the Simon Says Clear Stamps RAINBOW IS MY FAVORITE COLOR and Catherine Pooler Designs Samba, Catching Rays, Lime Rickey, and Cummerbund inks. I masked off the rainbow with some post-it notes and then using the Simon Says Stamp Stencil BUILD A RAINBOW and Catherine Pooler Designs Catching Rays Ink to add a sun behind it.

I stamped the clouds from the Simon Says Clear Stamps RAINBOW IS MY FAVORITE COLOR, the llama. shamrocks and sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Wooly Lucky onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

I left the inside of the card blank and just added some shamrocks.

Stenciled Background St. Patrick’s Day Card

Simon Says Stamp and Scrapbook.com

Hello friends. Here’s a quick but very cute St. Patrick’s Day card featuring Simon Says Stamp’s Wooly Lucky Stampset (this came out last year I believe). It’s a very simple card with a subtle stenciled background. I love using stencils for backgrounds because it makes it so quick. And who’s got time to make complicated backgrounds these days?!? Not me.

For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base and a piece from Neenah 80lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″. I used the Scrapbook.com Shamrocks 6 x 8″ Stencil with Catherine Pooler Garden Party Ink to create the background. I die cut it with the largest dot die from Catherine Pooler’s Scallops & Dots Dies which measures 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.

I stamped the llama and two rainbows from the Simon Says Stamp’s Wooly Lucky Stampset onto some Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock 8.5 X 11″ with Memento Tuxedo Black.

I colored the images with Copic colors. I used W0, W1 & 0, R20, & C7 for the llama; G07 & G09, C7 & C9, Y15 & Y17 for the hat and bow; YG03 for the shamrocks; YG03, YG17, G07, Y15 & Y17 for the blanket; R17 & R27, YR04 & YR07, YG17 & G07, B02 & B04, BV08 & BV17 for the rainbow; and BG000 & 0 for the clouds. I fussy cut all the images.

I stamped the sentiment from the from Lawn Fawn Hats Off to You Clear Stamps onto the card panel with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, then using my MISTI stamped over it with Versamark Ink, heat embossed it with Ranger CLEAR Embossing Powder.

Before adhereing the images to the card panel, I cut a piece of Tim Holtz Idea-ology 8 x 8 Paper Stash Metallic Jewels Kraft to 3-1/2 x 4-3/4″. I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the llama.

I finished the card by adding Nuvo Crystal Drops – Metallic Bright Gold.

I left the inside of the card blank and just added two images I had previously stamped from the same stamp set.
