Hero Arts has a challenge to create a card that is "Inspired By..." one of their designers.  I chose a card by Emily Midgett - it was one of her twenty minute cards she did for Christmas where she did some blending on a background and used a cover plate.


I began with a card base of peony cs and blended DO festive berries, picked raspberry and worn lipstick.  Added the die cut along with the sentiment and a few rose gold sequins.  I black stamped the sentiment and clear embossed it.  Then I used festive berries DO to color the background to match.  My card took a bit longer than twenty minutes, but to reproduce it again would be pretty quick.

I am also going to enter my card at Die Cut Divas where the theme is "Anything Goes".

Thanks for visiting today.



  1. Ooo - love the white coverplate diecut atop the blended background, Betty!! Think I might CASE this one for a Valentine bday :)

  2. Gorgeous card, Betty! Love the colors you blended behind that lovely cover plate!

  3. I think that's a Hero Arts die and you've blended this wonderfully. So glad you could join us at Die Cut Divas.

  4. Betty this is so beautiful! Thanks for playing along our December Challenge at Die Cut Divas. Happy New Year!!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
