Simon Says Stamp & CZ Design - Just a Note...Card

Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! This card makes a statement twice...with a bold image AND a striking sentiment. It is part of a trio of cards where I used the Modern Flower Stencil from Simon Says Stamp's Celebrate Release, however the focus here was on the heartfelt sentiment from the Just a Note Notes Stamp Set from CZ Design.

In today's card we will do two simple techniques, Ombre Stenciling using the new Simon Says Stamp Trio 25 and heat embossing a black image WITHOUT black embossing powder!

Red pink and purple All the Joy Christmas card with birds and holly leaves

These colors are so dreamy and soft and this gray-blue trio is a welcome addtion to Simon Says Stamp's Pawsitively Saturated Inks.

It was hard to choose which of the Just a Note Notes Stamp Set sentiments to use, but I ended up going with this one becuase it made me think of a specific someone who could use a little encouragement.

Simple and special! Stop overthinking your cards and just go make something!
