Peace

Seems like the Basic Grey Aspen Frost collection is definitely going to be my "go to" paper for making Christmas cards this year :)


I white embossed Hero Arts CG211 Magical Background on a piece of solid paper from this collection.  The sentiment (stamped in Ranger Barn Door distress ink) is from Hero Arts CL540 Christmas Reindeer.  The Arboscello Tree and Nestled Bird are both Memory Box dies.  It took a bit of effort to die cut the tree (used both selective shimming with masking tape AND the MB metal shim) but it was worth it. 
Other Materials Used:  Hero Arts clear gems, Papertrey ink white cs, WPlus 9 banner die

I'm going to enter this in the current Hero Arts challenge :

Just realized the colors I used in my card kinda match the colors in the challenge banner :)

Happy weekend everyone!
