A Blog Named Hero Birthday: Celebrate with Avery Elle

Good Afternoon! Are you getting into any crafty fun today? I sure hope so, because we are over at A Blog Named Hero :) lo

We are now into week three of our month long birthday celebration. There have been so many different guests and projects but all of them so super talented! This week is no exception, we are celebrating with . . .

Avery Elle! They are new to the market but their sets are completely gorgeous! In fact I already own 3 of their sets and have about 5 more on my wish list :)

Here is what I came up with today

I started by stamping the triangle border from Avery Elle's All Squared Up in Hero Art's Charcoal mid-tone ink. I stamped the entire base of my card. 

Once that was done I stamped the Large Flower (Hero Arts) three times and trimmed it out. I also stamped several of the large leaves from Hero Art's 3 leaves and fussy cut them too. I colored my flowers and leaves using distress ink then added some shine with stardust stickles. 

Once I had my flowers adhered I trimmed the edges to be flush with my card base. Speaking of the card base I forgot to mention I made it much thinner so I had plenty of room for my sentiment banner to hang off the edge but still fit in a standard size envelope. 

Time to head over to A Blog Named Hero and check out what the rest of the team made (and rumor has it there may be a gift card up for grabs to get your own Avery Elle). The fabulous design team at Avery Elle is also playing along this week so be sure to visit them too :)
