Hello, Jess here to share a bright and cheerful holiday card! Before I get started I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of our wonderful 2016 sponsors for a fabulous year!!
And don’t forget to link up a card or comment on any post this month for a chance to win one of ten prizes from our design team! 🙂
My final card for the month features Hero Arts and Concord & 9th! Unfortunately I seem to have used a discontinued background stamp (though it can still be found on eBay and a few other online shops) but you can also create a similar card using any of the beautiful background stamps from Hero Arts!
To start I blended abandoned coral, picked raspberry, festive berries, and ripe persimmon distress ink on a piece of white cardstock. Then I spritzed it with water a few times to get lighter spots. I dried it with a heat gun and then stamped the background stamp with versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder. Next I stamped the sentiment from Concord & 9th with versamark and heat-embossed it with the same gold embossing powder. I die-cut it with a stitched frame and then adhered it to the background panel over a tangle of gold thread.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards this year and thanks to all of you for helping to make A Blog Named Hero so much fun! 🙂 Have a wonderful holiday season!!
