Hero Arts: You are absolutely awesome





Hello and Happy Sunday afternoon!  I'm posting a bit later than usual but wanted to whip up something I had swirling around.  Some of you might remember that my boy is doing a study abroad in Paris and he landed there this morning!


I made this especially with him in mind, let's start on the bottom and work our way up!  I used a panel from the Earth Mix Layering Papers and stamped the Designer Woodgrain stamp with Soft Brown Shadow Ink.

The Absolutely Awesome sentiment was stamped with Intense Black ink on a panel from the Pool Mix Layering Papers.  I was able to get the curve cut by using one of the Nesting Oval Infinity Dies.


Have you picked up the Shopping Bag Fancy Die?  If not, you really should, it is so much fun!  I like to use double sided paper, and like the last time, I used upcycled packing paper.  I stuffed it with tissue from a gift that the kids got me from Sugarfina.  I know that the boy will recognize it :)

I had to use the Coffee and Croissant set because I keep telling the kids that's all I'm going to consume when we're in Paris together.

I can't wait to send him his first care package, I'll tuck this in there.

My card was inspired by the Paper Players:
