Not a card for Mass Production

I finally got caught up enough on things I had to do and cards that I had to make for one reason or another, so I could finally take a look at my Hero Arts kit for November.  It is once again a Christmas kit but more traditional than the 50″s theme of last month’s kit.

I started with what appears to be the most scene-stealing piece of the kit, which is the Fancy Die Door Front.   Holy intricate Batman…….it took me hours to painstakingly colour all those bricks with my Copic markers.  When that was done, the door swag required some fine colouring as well.  Then I realized that I had really just begun as the door opens and needs a full scene behind as well.  I decided that since I had spent so much time on it already, a few more minutes to pop the whole thing up to add some shadow and dimension seemed to make sense as well.

I am happy with the final result, but it was so much work, that I will find it difficult to actually mail it to someone this Christmas.

 

Christmas Tri-fold Card

I wasn’t expecting any mail today as it is Remembrance Day but my doorbell rang and there was this month’s Hero Arts Kit.  YAY!

I just had to use the tri-fold trees add-on die first.   It is so easy to use and made a beautiful card in minutes.
