I created this Christmas card to enter into the October “Merry Everything” challenge at Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero. I will also be sending it in to the HeroFest Holiday Cheer Card Drive to be donated to the Bay Area Rescue Mission in support of the homeless.
I created this look with an emboss resist technique. I stamped and heat embossed the images from the Hero Arts “Origami Happy Holidays” set and then ink blended over them with three colors of Distress Oxide ink: evergreen bough, pine needles, and black soot. I fashioned the sentiment with a die and stamp from the Hero Arts “Joy Stamp & Cut” set.
