Warm and Cozy


It’s almost that time of the year friends!

Aloha! Niki G. here wanting to share my thought process for this Christmas card below.

It all started with a grand idea to have some fun with the Dreamweaver Embossing Paste colored with

Tim Holtz Distress Ink refills in Twisted Citron and Festive Berries.

The refills have a little dropper making coloring the paste so easy!

I mixed one color first and layered onto the stencil to create a green, then red pattern.

I chose the Hero Arts Kraft cardstock as the base for my card

and used the Hero Arts BasicGrey Medallion Patterned Stencil just on the edge.


I also wanted to play with the fun Hero Arts Home Baked By Lia set

This is such a cute set at an awesome price!

I’m sure I’ll be using this a lot on cards, tags and goodie bags!!

I decided to use colored embossing powder in red and green to mimic my embossing paste

and tie the colors together.  Then I grabbed some snowflake patterned washi tape (from my stash)

just for a different color and create a little border.

My white card panel was splattered with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Hickory Smoke.

(When diluted with water it almost has a matte, silvery look to it)


The gingey couple was fussy cut and adhered with foam tape and the sentiment is from

the very popular Hero Arts Merry Cactus to You set.

(currently there’s only the die set in the store)

That’s my card for you today!

Before I leave, I wanted to encourage you all to join our fun challenge with a Fall Theme

for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the store!

Mahalo for stopping by!
