Wishing You Peace with Hero Arts

In a matter of months I'll be sending out Christmas cards, so I figure I better get on the ball and get creating.

Today I'm sharing a set of cards created using Hero Arts' Color Layering Peace set.  I really love the fun Typography and simple layering of the sentiments.  

I also pulled out my Snowflake Pattern Bold Print background from Hero Arts.  

I started by stamping the background tone on tone on both a dark green and red piece of cardstock.  Those pieces were trimmed down to A2 size and adhered to my card bases.

Then, with the assistance of my MISTI, I stamped the sentiments using two shades of Altenew ink.  For the red, Crimson and Velvet, and for the green, Just Green and Evergreen ink.  (For the tone on tone stamping on the backgrounds I used the darker shades of these colors.)

The swirly flourishes were stamped in the darker shade as well.

I added a cardstock mat to each of the sentiment panels and adhered those to the card bases.  Super easy.

To mix things up a bit, I stamped another pair of sentiment panels, but this time I used the darker ink for the base, and then stamped the accents in Versamark and embossed with gold.

I had originally stamped and embossed the background in gold too, but it was a little too busy, so I opted to use a plain card base instead.

These cards really did come together very quickly and are perfect for mass production.

Four more cards for my Christmas card pile....slow, but steady progress!
