Hero Arts Forest Background

Forest Background in Color


Hi, crafty friends, it’s Chark here today to show you how I used the forest background stamp to create a CAS card, which is just what our May challenge is all about. Clean and Simple. bI inked it up with Versamark embossing ink, sprinkled on blue embossing powder and then heat set. Next, I sprinkled a bit of gold embossing powder before heat-setting. And finally, I used a cherry red powder and then heat set that.

I trimmed the panel down and attached it to a cream cardstock panel and then adhered it to gold cardstock. I added the Hero Arts lace at the bottom to add a little interest without taking away from the clean and simple look. I figure the inside can be a hello, sympathy or even happy birthday sentiment.


Here’s a little closer view.
