SSS To the Moon Release

*This post contains affiliate links to Simon Says Stamp

I am drowning in pre-Christmas preparations, but I just had to take some time to work with the new To the Moon release from Simon Says Stamp.  

Today's card features a couple of my favorites from this release, the Love You die and the Peonies and Leaves stencil.

The Peonies and Leaves stencil is BIG, and just so pretty.  To create my background, I simply placed it over a piece of kraft cardstock and spread embossing paste through it.  Once the paste was dry, I trimmed the panel down and then popped it up over my card base with foam tape.

I then die cut the Love You die using kraft for the shadow piece and white for the sentiment itself.  The two pieces were adhered together and then I popped it up with foam tape.

I thought long and hard about adding a pop of red, but in the end, I just really loved the simplicity of the kraft and white, and if you've got a someone who isn't hugely into red/pink, I think this is a great subtle, sophisticated alternative.

Make sure you head over to Simon to check out the rest of the release.  I've got much more to share, and if you like birds, you are in for a treat!
