"MERRY CHRISTMAS" card using My Monthly Hero-Hero Arts Kit

Several weeks ago I ordered the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit the day it launched  I spent a good deal of time that day trying to get in and when I did I was so excited to get this kit in my hands.   My kit arrived and for some reason I wasn't "feeling it" to make anything.   This morning I watched a video on YouTube where the lady made a template and then stamped in the open areas, then put a thin strip of gold along the sides of each section.  I so wanted to try this so I made a template, however the first one I made was out of thicker paper and when I stamped the first image I knew I had to make another out of thinner paper.     

I used gold poster board on my card.  I buy it at Hobby Lobby and get the frame department to slice it across the middle into two sheets. They charge $1.00 per cut and it was so worth it.  I can then fit each piece into my paper trimmer to cut it down.  

The "bling" on the poinsettias are from The Eyelet Outlet.  I shipped my gold sharpie, so I figured I'd use them instead. When my son came home he still had his, so he let me use it in case I make more of these cards. 

I know I said in my last post I would be putting together a giveaway. I hadn't forgotten forgotten ~  I have had a few appointments this week to deal with and it kinda slipped my mind. I'll get some goodies gathered up.
