Hello there! It’s Cha here to show you my card for our monthly card challenge. You can still join us in this challenge until June 10 for having a chance to win some gift certificates. Use Hero Arts products and create a wonderful scene for sending hugs from a distance! This challenge is about this difficult time that the whole world is confronting. We want to see your cards! I hope you feel inspired by our cards and show us yours!
To make this card, I picked a piece of 4,25″ by 5,5″ Dove Premium Cardstock and die-cut the cover plate die with a facade of a house that came with one of the Hero Arts kits (My Monthly Hero kit November 2019). I die cut all my pieces with the Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine although you could use the one that you have already. Once die-cut, I colored the front using alcohol-based markers (the Copic markers), apart from the Chrismas decoration that surrounds the top window from the front because I wanted to create a decorative arch to put on it. To cover this part, I aligned two of the circles from the HA Circle Infinity Nesting Dies and die cut both at the same time. Then, I cut the extremes with scissors and cut two tiny rectangles to embellish the ends of this arch. I also colored this arch with Copics markers.
The Copic Sketch markers that I used for coloring this card, were the followings:
The floor: 100
At that moment, I thought I could remove the little triangle pieces from the window that is surrounded by the arch, and the lamps that are on each side of the door so that I could add a piece of acetate behind the panel to give some dimension to the card.
Later, I blended some yellow ink. I went for the Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink to color the front part of a White Folded Card base. I put the panel with the facade of the house over the card base and traced the door opening with a pencil. Then, I stamped the sentiment with HA Intense Black ink inside that opening and over the yellowish background. Once stamped, I erased the pencil lines.
To embellish this card, I decided to glue some envelopes to the door mailbox and in the opening door. I also added the knob of the door with some dimensional glue pen as it is the Hero Arts Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen and also, I added some dimension to the arch. Finally, I added some shimmer to some of the elements of the card, the pavement, and the arch with the NUVO Aqua Shimmer pen.
And this is all! I hope you like this card as I do and see your cards joining us in this challenge that will come to an end soon. Thank you so much and see you the next time!
