Toucan of Appreciation

Hello there, today I have a card to share using another two products from the Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero release. I thought the toucan would work really well with the Leaves and Vines Fancy Die.

I started off by stamping one of the toucan's and two of the flowers from the Hero Arts Hello Toucan Stamp Set on to white cardstock using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and die cut them using the coordinating dies.
I took a panel of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment on it from the same Hello Toucan set with more black ink. I then ran this piece through my die cutting machine embossing the Hero Arts Leaves and Vines Fancy Die on to it. The panel was added flat to an A2 white card base with tape runner.
I took a piece of Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock as well as a piece of black and white striped paper and cut these in to strips, cutting ribbon ends at one side. These were added to the card on the right hand side and the toucan perched on top with foam tape. I then popped the flowers behind the toucan.

I really like how the Leaves and Vine die embossed on to the cardstock, I think it gave a really nice impression and perfect for a subtle background. Thanks so much for popping by to see me today. I hope you have a great rest of the weekend!
