Hero Arts Joys of the Season

Hello, crafty friends! Happy Thursday! I’m posting today on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m excited to share a DT inspiration project, an acetate Christmas card using the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly stamp set and the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly Frame Cuts along with the Hero Arts Acetate Note Cards. I’m pretty happy with my growing stack of Christmas cards – I should be in good shape to have them all mailed by December 1st!

I created a totally clear acetate card several weeks ago and I just couldn’t resist making another one, although this card has diagonal panels of cardstock on which to stamp and layer my holly die cut. This is definitely clean and simple which I’m really loving these days. I embellished the front panel with a single holly leaf and used sparkly red sequins for the berries to add a little dimension and interest.


I stamped the front and inside sentiments in Hero Arts Red Royal ink. That’s all there is to it… super simple and really packs a huge punch! Loving how it turned out! :)
