Hero Arts Christmas Card Trio

10.11.2015

Hello everyone,

today I have something different for you – I created a set of Christmas cards with some gorgeous Hero Arts stamps.


I was inspired by some Nordic or Scandinavian Folk Art designs and made my own pattern using these small stamps from the «Build a Wreath by Lia» and «Scandinavian Holiday by Lia» stamp sets. The tiny hearts which work perfect as space fillers come from the «Peace & Joy» set.

To create this typical look I decided to only have two colors – traditional Red and White. All the images were randomly stamped in Hero Arts «Red Royal» Shadow Ink. I think this design would also look great in Aqua or multiple colors.


On my first card I used the whole background piece, die cut it with a Simon Says Stamp «Stitched Rectangle» die and glued it to my white top folding card base. I also die cut two stitched squares and stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment from the «Joy To The World» set. I adhered those squares with foam tape for a bit of dimension.


For the second card I stamped another background and die cut a heart (Stampin' Up! «Heart Collection» Framelits) from the center. I created a card base from SU «Riding Hood Red» cardstock and white heat embossed the beautiful scripty sentiment («Peace & Joy» stamp set) where the heart window would be. I also added two little hearts to balance things out. Finally I adhered my stamped panel with foam tape.



Since I still had the die cut heart left from the 2nd card I decided to make a third card with a really simple design. I cut another heart from red cardstock that would be a mat behind the stamped heart. I popped it up with foam tape and stamped the sentiment from the «Holiday Greetings» stamp set directly onto my white card base. I heat embossed it with ZING! «Metallic Red» embossing powder.

Hope you liked my trio of Christmas cards. I'm taking part in the Hero Arts Holiday Cardmaking Challenge.
