Hero Arts Season’s Greetings

Hi everyone! As many of you know, October 7th is 2017 World Cardmaking Day!


We’re having a whole lotta fun over at a2z this weekend! We’re having a mini FUN FOLD challenge over at the a2z Scrapbooking blog along with a 25% off SALE on everything in the a2z Scrapbooking store (except the stuff in the “Sale” section because it’s already on sale, lol)! PLUS everyone who enters a fun fold project (no regular folds this time) gets the adorable Hero Arts Spooky Labels Halloween Digital Kit! AND we’re doing a Rafflecopter Giveaway for entries to win a $20 gift certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking store! How cool is that?!


I created a simple accordion card (thanks for the inspiration, Dawn! :) in the traditional Christmas colors of red and green, using the amazing Hero Arts Jingle All The Way Stamp & Cut and Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set.


Here is a shot of the card completely open and then individual two-page shots. I’m really happy with how this turned out. So cute! :)

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
