{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Anything Goes with Simon Exclusives



Welcome to the final Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in October! This week's challenge is Anything Goes featuring Simon Says Stamp Exclusives. You don't have to use Simon Exclusives but we'd love to see them if you have them! I used the From Us stamp set and the Curved Edge die to create a set of four note cards, including two thank you cards and two birthday cards. I love that these are completely flat and easy to mail.


I've wanted to make cards in this style for a while now and when I received the From Us stamp set and Curved Edge die, everything came together beautifully. As you can see in the photo below, I cut curved panels of patterned papers from Hey You and Hey Boy that show at the bottom of the card when closed but leave enough white space inside the card for writing personal messages.


After the cards were done, I packaged them together with envelopes in a clear bag, tied the package with May Arts' new Antique Gold burlap string and dressed it up with a glittery gold die cut heart from Large Holiday Shapes (also a Simon Exclusive) and a mini clothes pin.


One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!


It could be you!




I hope you will play along with us this week!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)

I love these cards, Emily!!! Your aesthetic is great, as I have checked out your other cards. I will be back to view your work! Don't you love those "Hey Boy" papers-- I have the set and they are so great for boys cards, the little monkeys and boom boxes and cassette tapes!
