New Baby

Hello there, today I have a card to share using a couple of the Hero Arts add-on sets released alongside the February My Monthly Hero Kit (now sold out). Although these add-on products work especially well with the kit, they can be used on their own and are available to purchase like any other Hero Arts product (they are not limited like the kit itself).

I started off by stamping the adorable elephant from the Fun In the Rain stamp set and coloured him using Copic Markers (colours used listed below the supplies section). He was then cut out using the coordinating die. I took a panel of white cardstock and cut an aperture using one of the Nesting Cloud Infinity Dies. I then cut another cloud but this time used the positive of the cut.
I took the blue vellum included in the MMH February kit and added this behind the cloud aperture. The panel was then added to an A2 white card base with foam tape. The elephant was added on top with more foam tape. The sentiment, from the Congrats Stamp & Cut was stamped on to the smaller cloud. This was then added to the card with foam tape also. To finish off, I added a few sequins.

I am super eager to use the pig image from the set but as soon as I saw this set, I had the idea with the elephant in my head so I had to make this card first! Thank you so much for visiting me today, I hope you have a great day and a great weekend too!
