My friend and fellow stamper, Amy Koenders and I recently had a “Stampin’ Playdate” to assemble the Watercolor Winter Simply Created Card Kit. The cards in this kit are just adorable!
Although, I love the end result of this kit, it isn’t a quick one to put together. Amy and I worked together for a little over 3 hours to put it together. It was a really fun evening, and a great way to spend time with friends! I would definitely recommend it as a social evening for you and some crafting friends!
As the name suggests, the kit is intended to be watercolored, but Amy and I decided to save some time by using a brayer and sponge daubers instead. We used a brayer on the trees and the sleds, rather than watercoloring them and waiting for the ink to dry. 🙂
This kit comes with materials to create some of the cards in four languages (English, German, Spanish, and French). Since my sister lives in Germany, I decided to make one of the cards in German. She’s going to love that!
For the stripes on this card, we used a mask and sponge dauber to save a little time. We also sponged the letters. Sponging before you punch out the letters saves a lot of time.
Amy and I used the same sponging technique on the word “Merry” in this card.
The card kit comes with the card bases and embellishments needed to make 20 cards, 5 of each of the four designs (stamps, ink, and adhesive not included). However, we did decide to add a few extra embellishments for some extra wow! We used rhinestones colored with the Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities and the Frosted Sequins for a little bling. 🙂
All in all, this kit provided Amy and I with some great “girlfriend time” and we each walked away with 10 finished Christmas cards! I’d say that is a deal you can’t beat.
