February My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 +Giveaway

by Jessica Frost-Ballas February 03, 2019 158 Comments

We are one sleep away from the release of the February My Monthly Hero Kit! The kit will be available Monday, February 4th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let’s join Jess, who is sharing the final look at this fabulous kit!

Hello! Jess here and I've created trendy black and gold birthday card using the gorgeous Fancy Die included in the kit as well as a sentiment from one of the add-ons for this month's kit!

To start I die-cut the Fancy Die from black cardstock. I poked out all the pieces except the large center piece. On that large center piece I stamped the birthday sentiment from the add-on set with Versamark and heat-embossed it with gold embossing powder.

Then I adhered the die-cut frame to a piece of gold cardstock using our new Precision Glue! It's perfect when you need adhesive in tiny spaces! (It'll be available February 15th.) I placed a few acrylic blocks on top of the panel just to hold the die in place while it dried. Once it was totally dry I popped the sentiment panel into place with the same liquid adhesive and finished the card with a little black and gold confetti included in the kit. And that's it, quick and easy and you can change out the sentiment for a variety of occasions! ;) 

Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post! We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from all the comments left across all countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, February 4th, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Good luck!
