VIDEO | Hero Arts Foiled Christmas Ornament

Hello there and happy Monday to you! Today I have a card and video to share with you using Hero Arts Ornament Fancy Dies with hot foiling, ink blending and die cutting. The Ornament Fancy Dies are perfect for die-cut inlay and lots of other techniques, but I thought I would do something different today and add a hot foiled sentiment. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my card by hot foiling the sentiment from the Hero Arts Three Holiday Messages Hot Foil Plate onto Hero Arts Nautical Cardstock using Spellbinders Champagne Foil and the Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System. I then die cut it out using one of the Hero Arts Ornament Fancy Dies. I cut the topper from Hero Arts Holiday Sparkle Glitter Paper (gold). 

Whilst die cutting, I cut some foliage from Hero Arts Winter Foliage Stamp & Cut XL from Hero Arts Meadow and Pine Cardstock. I added ink blending to them using Hero Arts Pine Core Ink. I then added ink blending to the ornament using Hero Arts Nautical and Pitch Black Core Inks. I did this to the US A2 sized card base made from Nautical Cardstock too. 

I adhered the foliage to the card base with Hero Arts Precision Glue XL. I then adhered the topper to the ornament and tied DMC Gold Diamant Thread through the top and tied in a double bow. It was adhered to the card using foam tape. To finish off, I added a few gold gems. 


Here is the video showing how I made the card:

Whilst a simple card design, I do like the colour combination. I think the blue card base adds a little drama to the card! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a wonderful day and a great week ahead!

  1. Michelle, this is so BEAUTIFUL! I love the gorgeous gold foiled ornament so much! The foliage is the perfect finishing touch and really grounds the bauble. Mum gave me some of the gold DMC thread and it looks fabulous tied as a double bow ❤❤❤
