Avery Elle "You're My Hero" Card

Avery Elle "You're My Hero" Card

Posted by Heather Innusa on

I really love the ScrapbookPal shop and how they have such a fun stock/selection of products!! I get ALL of my Copic Markers/Refills from them and I just love that they also carry so many beloved stamp company's products as well!! Ladies and gentlemen can not live on markers alone - we must have fun images to color and they've got us covered in the ScrapbookPal Shop!

I created my card today for a friend who was recently diagnosed with sarcoma, a type of cancer. While the diagnosis is super scary (she is 42 years old!) I know that she is a fighter. She's faithful, determined, and brave. I thought the Avery Elle Superhero Stamp Set (ST-21-01) would set the stage for a perfect encouragement card for a card for her!

I started this card off by cutting a panel of Bristol paper to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 as a card base. I inked it up using Distress Oxide Inks and an Ink Blending tool (IBT40965). The Distress Oxide Ink Colors that I chose were: Tumbled Glass (TDO-56287)Stormy Sky (TDO-56256)Blueprint Sketch (TDO-55822), and Chipped Sapphire (TDO-55884). I love this combination for a night sky! Then I used a golden watercolor palette to add some stars. A really great item for this is the Nuvo Mica Mist in Aspen Gold (578n), it gives you some great shine!! Finally I used a little solid star from the Superhero stamp set to add some additional dimension to the night sky!

Next, I went to work stamping the images that I wanted to use on the card - which were all of them haha!. They are all so fun! After that, I used the coordinating die set (D-21-01) to cut them all out and assemble them onto my card. This is the point where I added the "You're My Hero" sentiment to the card. I finished it off my adding one of the images to the inside of the card along with an additional sentiment for fun!

I really love how this card came out and I hope that it makes my friend smile! The thing that I love most about being a cardmaker is the power to make some feel seen, loved, and encouraged in such an unexpected way!
