Wow Flowers card with Simply Sent Card Elements

One of the easily overlooked great products in the Stampin' Up! Catalog are the Simply Sent Card Elements kits on page 166-167. These kits include all the components you need to create nine 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards (A2 size), three each of three styles. A very colorful sheet of self-adhesive die cuts, six sheets of textured cardstock, two 8-1/2 x 11" sheets of double sided Designer Paper, two ribbons, brads, buttons... All you add is the stamp set and your ink pads! At only $15.95 for the kit, that's a great bargain for nine cards, and even have some extra cardstock left over! Oh yes, also included is a sheet of instructions with full-color photos!

This card was made with the Flower Power Simply Sent Card Elements kit which coordinates with the Wow Flowers stamp set. I love the very colorful and distinctive color scheme and the stamp set is such fun! I added the Happy Birthday sentiment, punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered on another solid Rose Red Word Window punch out.

Stamps: Wow Flowers (#111714, $12.95).
Inks: Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, Rose Red, Old Olive, More Mustard; Designer Paper (all in the Flower Power SS Card Elements kit (#112028, $15.95)
Accessories: More Mustard grosgrain, self adhesive die cut (image on white) (from kit). I added a circle Rhinestone brad that wasn't in the kit but the kit does furnish coordinated brads and buttons; Word Window punch.

Don't overlook these great kits for quick and easy cards; they also made great gifts for yourself or your favorite papercrafter!

Happy Stampin'!
