January My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway
Hello and welcome back to the countdown to the release of the January My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, January 6th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We will be here all weekend sharing peeks. Now let's join Michelle for another look at this wonderful kit!
Hello there, as soon as I saw this kit, I knew that I wanted a layered design but still kept quite clean and simple and I think the dies in the kit work perfectly for this. I started off my card by die cutting the envelope die from the kit using Classic Vellum Layering Paper and folded the sides up to create the envelope.
I then took the buttterfly die and cut this from Hero Hues Arctic Premium Cardstock. I wanted the middle of the butterfly to be a little darker so I blended on some Pool Party Reactive Ink and then spritzed it using White Iridescent Shimmer Spray. I die cut one of the leaf dies in the kit twice from Hero Hues Kiwi Premium Cardstock and adhered them to the envelope using a small amount of Precision Glue. I then added the butterfly in the middle using foam tape.
The envelope was adhered to a top folded card base, that I have scored lines on with a score board and bone folder, using tape runner (making sure to hide the adhesive behind the butterfly). I took the sentiment from the kit stamp set and stamped it on to Hero Hues Pitch Black Premium Cardstock with Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I then heat embossed using White Detail Embossing Powder and cut it in to a strip using the banner die included in the kit. This was added to the card with tape runner and then I finished off the card by adding a few Blues Hero Hues Enamel Dots.
