10 Cards, 1 Kit | Patio Party (Part 2 of 2)

Hello lovelies,

Happy Friday!! It’s an extra happy Friday around here because my Simon Says Stamp April card kit arrived in the mail today. I know what I’ll be working on this weekend 🙂

As for now, I’m back today with part 2 of my 10 Cards, 1 Kit featuring the Patio Party collection. You can check it out here:

Here are your still shots:


I LOVE that floral paper – I would totally put up some wallpaper with that pattern. I really wanted to leave a navy border around the card to pull out the small blue flowers, but it just wouldn’t work with the sizing.

The friend like you stamp set has so many great sentiments.

Those flamingos are so much fun.

I don’t do a lot of stamping on patterned paper (mainly because I ‘m worried about the readability) but I really liked how this turned out so I may try it more often.

Those white stripes matched up almost perfectly with the two bottom sentiment lines.

Isn’t that mint color to die for? I could paint every room in my house that color! So soft and cheerful!

Thankfully those balloons worked out – they were the only ones I had!


OHHH I’m so excited with how this card came out! I think it will be really fun to open and I know just who I’m sending it to!

My favorite (or maybe I should say “go-to”) way to finish off the inside of a card is with a matching stripe of paper – mainly because it’s easy.

How do you like to finish the inside of your cards?

It’s funny, the addition of the butterfly was a total afterthought, but now when I look at the card it wouldn’t be complete without it.

The pop of gold foiling gives it a little something extra special.
