Today I'm back with a new card share showcasing the February 2017 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. The kit looks like it was super popular with the coffee and tea lover crown and has sold out but many of the components can be purchased individually. I am loving the Mama Elephant Zipper Die and I paired it with the components of the February Kit for this interactive zipper panel. The stamps from the Coffee & Tea Stamp Set work perfectly with this die!
For the background of the card, I die cut several panels from the patterned papers and cardstock included in the kit using the Simon Says Stamp Basic Rectangles Dies. From the smallest patterned paper rectangles and white cardstock rectangle, I ran them through the Big Shot using the Mama Elephant Zipper Die. I carefully removed the patterned papers to fit above and below the zipper panel on the white cardstock rectangle as shown. On the "zipper", I stamped a greeting and the hearts from the Coffee & Tea Stamp Set using Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink and Simon Says Stamp Hot Lips Ink.
Using the extra patterned paper pieces as guides, I stamped "you & coffee" on the dark pink cardstock panel. This is the hidden message that is revealed when you pull the zipper strip below the coffee cups. (I mocked up the panel in the photo below, on the left, so you can see what it will look like when the zipper interactive element is pulled!).
I assembled the inlay style coffee cups above the zipper on the panel as shown and added several of the gold glitter heart enamel dots from the kit above the cups and several of the coffee beans around the bases of the cups to finish the top of the card. A bit of white silk ribbon wrapped around the bottom of the panel adds interest.
The decorative zipper panel was adhered to the white cardstock rectangle, then the pink patterned rectangle before securing the whole thing to a white top fold card base.
