SSS January 2022 Card Kit of the Month

  Hi Everyone!


I am here to share a new Simon Says Stamp Card Kit project !
This time with the January2022 Card Kit


I started by inking my bg using the wonderful snowflake stencil from the kit. I stamped one of the trees from the stamp set and because the set had some lovely rhinestones I added thos to the tree too - this made it look a bit like a Christmastree so just leave them out if you just want a winter card now that the Holiday Season is over... 
I spattered on some white gouach for snow. The cardstock for my cardbase and panel also came with the kit! Such inspiring kits every month!!! LOVE them
