Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas Blog Hop.
If you have arrived from the awesome blog of talented Mariana Grigsby, then welcome. If not, head to Hero Arts and start from the beginning.
Today we are hopping along to celebrate the release of Hero Arts' lovely Christmas and holiday collection. This release is fab - there is such a mixture of styles: vintage, modern and cute too. I chose to work with one of my favourites - the pretty Four Snowflakes stencil. I simply adhered it to a Shallows notecard, added white embossing paste and sprinkled it with Star Dust Distress Glitter. Once dry, I added some silver thread behind a die cut glittery heart, and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Crystals set.

I just love this soft aqua colour for Christmas… it's peaceful and pretty.
