Christmas Thank You Cards - Part 1

Hello, friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  We have been enjoying time off from school and work with lots of family visits and fun activities...not much time for crafting but I'm enjoying the time off.

I did find some time to make some card sets for the Hero Arts monthly challenge, and I got them in just under the wire at the Hero Arts Flickr group.  (That's how this whole vacation has been...everything done under the wire!)

I was able to make several sets, and here is my favorite.  For this set, I used the Hero Arts  Blossom Art set and embossed the flower in white on patterned paper.  The sentiment is from the All Occasion Messages set embossed in white.  The greenery is die cut using the Fanciful Flourish by Cheery Lynn.  I stamped the Magical Background stamp using Punch chalk ink onto a punch card.  I centered one flower, while the other was off-center for some variation; the flowers have gold Stickles in the centers.

Here is a close-up of the centered flower card:

I'll be back tomorrow to share pictures of another card set I made for the Hero Arts challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love this set, Judy! So pretty with the red and white combo, and all the different ways you incorporated the dots! Happy New Year to you and your family! :)

  2. This flower is my favorite! Love the red polka dot paper and the repeat in the embossing! I like all of them :) Hope you have a marvelous New Year!!

  3. I had Blossom Art in my cart just a few days ago and ended up not getting it. Now I am kicking myself because I so want to copy this wonderful set. Love the polka dots and the magical background and the touch of gold is a perfect touch.


Thanks for taking the time to comment...I do appreciate it!
