Non-Traditional Holiday Card with Hero Arts

Hero Arts Holidays Die Snowflake Edge

Hi Everyone! Kristina here with my first of the years Holiday cards. If you don’t already know we have the new 2018 Hero Arts holiday release in store now and ready to get inky. I went a little die crazy with this release buying a bunch of the new fancy dies and had to get ahold of this “Holidays” sentiment. I like to do “Happy Holidays” cards more frequently for the ones I’m going to mail, because chances are they aren’t getting sent on time. So if they get there by New Years I’m still in the clear!

For this card I started by just ink blending a background panel with some distress oxide inks, I knew I wanted to do something utilizing the snowflake fancy edge as a frame/border. The die is 5.5″ long, but I decided to trim it down to use horizontally on a top fold card.

When I started playing with the sentiment die I decided to do an inlay, and I really wanted it to pop. So I cut the die first out of the ink blended background and then out of some black card stock and pieced the two together onto an a2 card base. To complete the sentiment I pulled the word Happy off of another sentiment sent and stamped it above. To pull it all together and give it a real pop, I added glossy accents overtop the sentiment.

  1. This is Gor-Geous Kristina! Love that soft pastel colored ombre background!!!

  2. I love it. The glittery borders are perfect for the season and the little stamped “Happy” fits in perfectly. The non-traditional colors just drew me in. Here’s a WOW card for ya.

  3. Very nice Kristina! It is nice to see some non traditional colors. So pretty with the sparkly border snowflakes.

  4. Wow that’s some awesome blending Kristina & I just love the colours you used! Hugs, DT Gwendolyn
