Happy Christmas to all


Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here with today’s card. It’s perfect for this month’s challenge because I made it in one layer of card stock and the theme is Christmas. The best part is that I didn’t use any Christmas products. Let me show you my card first.

Happy Christmas to all

To create my card I used the Swirl Stencil of Hero Arts and the Happy Stamp & Cut Set of Hero Arts. I used the stencil inked with white pigment ink over the Wild Wasabi card stock. Then I moved a little to the right and I inked again with Classic Wild Wasabi Ink to intensify the color. I let the pigment ink dry for a few minutes and I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Stamp Set using Versamark and Gold Embossing Powder. I melted the powder with the heat tool and voila, my card was finished.

Happy Christmas to all

This technique is great when you use dark card stock because the pigment ink creates a shadow and when you apply the same color of ink of the paper you create a complete dimension of the stenciled image.

You can find the products that I used in a2z Scrapbooking Store and you can use my discount code MARTHA20 in all your orders. Also during this season you will find a lot of specials on the store.

I hope my project inspiring you to participate in our monthly challenge, remember you only have to use any product from Hero Arts and you will have the opportunity to win amazing prizes. To see the November Challenge click HERE.

See you soon!

Happy Christmas to all
