Hello there! It’s Cha here with another card for a birthday. There are a few days left so that this challenge is going to end.

If you win, you will get a 50$ gift certificate, also another crafter will be chosen randomly and will get a 25$ gift certificate! Hurry up and upload your birthday cards! Let’s start creating a birthday card!
I decided to make a simple card using several Hero Arts products from two different My Monthly Hero kits. They are not available but you can find other similar products at the Hero Arts store. Remember that there are optional subscriptions in order to purchase these monthly kits. If you are interested, check them out here!
My Monthly Hero kit – February
First of all, I picked the fancy die that came with one of the kits (the July 2018 My Monthly Hero kit) and decided to create a mask from this die using Masking Paper. I just wanted to use the frame of this die and the centerpiece. Then, I added the masks on an A2-sized panel. For coloring this card background, I used Distress Oxides but you can use the Hero Arts Reactive Inks. The colors that I used were Squeeze Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey. Besides, I sprayed some water and some shimmer to this background. I waited a few seconds and removed all the masks from the panel.
As I wanted this card simple, I just stamped a small present on white cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and colored with Copic Markers – R89, R46, Y19, Y02. I used the Mini MISTI Stamping Tool to get a more crisp image. I used the coordinating die to cut the image. This image was from the February 2020 My Monthly Hero kit which I said this is not available. I added this image in the middle of the card with some adhesive foam circles.
In order to arrange this card, I glued a piece of black cardstock on a white card base. I trimmed a little bit the edges of the main panel and glued it on top of the black piece so that a black frame is shown around the central panel.
I hope you are encouraged to take part in this challenge before March, 10th.
Thank you so much!
