Hi! I’m really thrilled to be a guest here for the first time today! And I wanted to share one of my favorite things from the Hero Arts holiday collection – this Paper Layering Christmas Tree die! The die looks like a half tree – you can cut it twice, once on the front of your paper, then again on the back, to create a full tree. I love the dimension it brings to my card! I embossed the entire tree with Hero Arts silver embossing powder. A little bit of Bo Bunny Silver Glitter Paste was added to the center tree for extra sparkle.

The tree is mounted on vellum, which is on top of Echo Park Dots & Stripes paper. I love the font of the “Merry Christmas” greeting from the Hero Arts Color Layering Wreath set. I inked it up in gray using Kelly’s Urban Inks. A few sequins finish off the card.
