A Christmas Gift

Hey Friends!

I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday!  Ours was amazing. Every year I say, "This was the best Christmas!" and each year it keeps getting better.  I made several gifts this year, 2 blankets, some ornaments, and this set of cards for my Mother-in-Law.  I used some of my new Hero Arts stamps. Aren't they beautiful?  These cards aren't my usual style, but I wanted to make something that my MIL would like.  These were also super simple to make.  I used the large background stamp, and black heat embossed the whole thing on patterned paper.  It really added great texture and dimension. I then stamped the sentiment, hole punched it, and strung through some embroidery floss.  There were 4 cards total (2 birthday, 2 thank you).  I think she liked them!  Did you make any gifts this year?

**Note that the large background stamp image at stores online is wrong - it is actually the reverse of what is shown. I learned the hard way after I had already bought it.  You can see the correct image on the Hero Arts website when you browse the digital catalog**


  1. What a beautiful card set. I'm sure your MIL will love them and use them to impress her friends! I made home made chocolate and vanilla caramels as my home made gifts. I think next year, I will make card sets. Believe it or not, it would be much easier!

  2. Lovely card set. I love the look
