Simple Wreath Cards. Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Kit - Trick or Treat Card and Christmas Card by Yana Smakula

Simple Wreath Cards. Hero Arts September My Monthly Hero Blog Hop

Hello all and thank you for stopping by today to help celebrate the launch of September My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts (more about the kit and blog hop below).

If you are a fan of wreath dies you are going to love this kit! I’m not going to lie, I got over the moon excited when I saw all of the wreath dies available in both main kit and add-ons. Each has a fantastic design and they all work wonderfully for all sort of occasions, I’m sharing a Halloween and a Christmas one.

Like this project? Pin it and save for later! 

I wanted to keep my cards simple, so I die cut a wreath out of glitter paper, I used black for the Halloween card and gold for Christmas and also cut a banner shape out of cardstock included in the main kit using my scissors. I just had this idea of letting the banner go trough the wreath; I’m sure I’ve seen it somewhere (like in a magazine or online) and I loved that idea.

Once my base was created I stamped and die cut various images to dress up my projects. I went with carved pumpkins and bats for the Halloween card (I used yellow and brown ombre inks); and holly leaves and berries for the Christmas card (I used Soft Olive and Forever Green; Pale Tomato and Red Royal). I also die cut some additional images using dies and shimmer cardstock.

To create sentiment for these I used non-kit Hero Arts stamps – the Autumn to heat emboss Hello and this year’s Christmas Messages to heat emboss Peace & Love.

I really love how simple these cards are and how the wreath dies can be used for many occasions. Replace pumpkins with flowers and butterflies and you have a Spring wreath. Add some pineapples – and you have a Summer one. Sky is the limit here.
