Birthday Cactus Card with My Monthly Hero

 I'm popping in for a quick card created with the August Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit. The kit this month was mostly desert vintage themed which meant I NEEDED ALL THE THINGS! I finally got around to using it, and it will definitely be the only supplies out on my desk for a while.

I was inspired to join in the August Stay Crafty challenge: Squares. I started with the Hero Arts Cactus Bold Prints stamp which is heat embossed on black paper using Hero Arts Brass embossing powder. The panel was then cut with my Fiskars trimmer to be a 4" square. Then I found the center of the panel using my T-ruler and used a square Spellbinders die to cut out the center.

The sentiment was stamped directly on the card base using Hero Hues Pine ink (from the monthly kit) and the stamp is from the Roadside Messages stamp. I used my gold Wink of Stella pen to add some glittery gold accents to the flags (my pen leaked a bit on one of the flags... oh well!)

There are some great cactus dies included in the monthly kit, and I thought they'd make good accents around the window. I used the Hero Hues Pine ink to swipe the ink onto a piece of cardstock. Then I die cut the cactus out of the inked cardstock and glued them to the corner of the window.

A super simple card that has a big impact! I am so in love with this kit... can't wait to keep creating!
