Hello, everyone! Shellye here with a trio of cards featuring just a few of the fun Simple Stories cut files that you can find at Silhouette. My intention was to show varying ideas on how to attach the die cuts, the types of paper to cut them from and fun ways to embellish them! By the way, all files are 50% off at the Silhouette Online Store through the 23rd; now's a great time to pick up these and other Simple Stories designs!!
Let's get started with the first card entitled "So Awesome." This is a Father's Day card using the Hey Pop Simple Set
I started with the "awesome" welded word and cut it from both a light grey piece of cardstock and one of the red papers from the 6X6 DIY Boutique Paper Pad. I cut away all but the "so" portion of the red paper and adhered it over the grey wording with foam adhesive.
To embellish, I covered a couple of chipboard stars from mystash with papers from the Simple Set. I added the burlap stars and enamel dots from the DIY Do-It-Yourself Collection.

So, we have a Father's Day card completed...how about a Mother's Day card?
This card features the Hey Mom Simple Set and the "Love You" welded word. After cutting the word from textured cardstock, I backed the opening of the "you" banner with a scrap of paper from the collection. When attaching to the base paper, I placed foam adhesive on the banner part of the die-cut only and then attached the top portion with a quick dry glue.
I went on to embellish with pretty trims from May Arts Ribbon and some buttons from my stash. Raspberry colored adhesive pearls hightlight the small hearts at the top of the journal card.

Lastly is a play-on-words card that would make a fun belated birthday or forgotten occasion card!
This card is all things cute from the DIY Boutique Collection and this trendy camera cutting file. I cut the shape from the woodgrain paper found in the 6X6 Paper Pad. Turquoise sequins were glued around the opening...I love how they tie in with the background paper!
Before adhering to the cardfront, I stitched on a flash using baker's twine.
