I love Shari Carroll. She used to work for Hero Arts and you know how I love Hero Arts. Her design style has always been so appealing to me and I have never ONE time seen a card she made and said "Ewwwwww!". She recently went to work for Simon Says Stamp which is way cool...because not only can she work with Hero Arts things, I assume, but also with all the great products Simon Says Stamp has to offer. A win-win situation for me!
She recently posted a card on the Simon Says Stamp Blog which you can see HERE. I love this card with the die cut sentiment and the touch of acetate. I thought...well, I can do this. Sort of....when I made mine I was out of town and only had some supplies with me. But the good news is that I used up some more paper scraps I had from some old Simon Says Stamp card kits.
Yay me. I used what I had on hand.
Here is my card:
The top layer with the acetate is adhere with some foam tape to give a bit more dimension and lift it off the patterned paper behind it.
I love the look of white on white...and I love that wood grained paper from Simon Says Stamp. The "happy birthday" sentiment is also cut with exclusive Simon Says Stamp dies. I do love the die cuts that Shari used but again I used what I had on hand. And my hand does not own those. Poor me.
The word "celebrate" was stamped with a Paper Smooches stamp.
