Product Reveal: Simple Stories - Sub Zero

This month, I was so lucky to work with Simple Stories - Sub Zero paper line. It is colorful, whimsical and chockful of gorgeous pattern papers and accents.

In March, we celebrate alot of birthdays between family and friends. For a special someone, I wanted to make a cute card but could include some personal and heartfelt thoughts.

This layered card seemed like the perfect combination of a card and album. It is 5.75" x 5.75"

A close up of the finished card - its a fabulous way to use up all the sticker elements from the sheet.

To start, I cut 1 thick piece of cardboard into a 5.75" x 5.75" square and then I cut 4 additional pieces of neutral cardstock to 5.75" x 5.75" too.

Then I adhered my pattern paper to both sides of the cardstock and cardboard.

Using my nesting circle dies, I cut 4 circles going from biggest (on the front page) to the smallest (on the second to last page).

Starting with the bottom layer I created a scene with my sticker sheet. I lined up the circle to make sure my snowboarding bear peeked through.

Then the fun began with the layering and decorating. Please note that I did not show the back sides of the pages as it held some personal writings.

And the next layer...I just adore that penguin.

Yet another layer...the colors against the neutral background pops!

The front of the card!

I applied my powder tool to the edges of the stickers so they did not stick to the bottom layers.

I hope you were inspired!
