Happy Holidays with Hero Arts Christmas Swirls Digital Stamps

I've made this holiday card with the exclusive a2z Scrapbooking Hero Arts digital set, Christmas Swirls.  You can't get digital Hero Arts stamps ANYWHERE else!  I hope you can join us at a2z Scrapbooking's challenge.  The theme this month is Winter Wonderland and I am sure you have created something you can share with us!  While the holidays have since passed, I'm just going to save this card for next year.  I hope you enjoy it!
What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base {7" x 5"}
Hero Arts Digital Stamp Set, Christmas Swirls, #DK020
Sakura Gelly Roll Gold Pen, from the Stardust Set
Small Colored Gems from my stash

As you may know I struggle with digital stamps and I am SO proud of this card!  One of my wonderful teamies from a2z Scrapbooking posted this really easy tutorial about how to use Word for digital stamps and I could actually do it!  If
you'd like the link, drop me a line using the contact form on the right side {I haven't asked the writer if I can share her hard work.}

I created the card front on one piece of paper, trimmed it down and attached it to the card base.  I'm not quite skilled enough to make a one layer card but I'm working on it!  Once the card was dry, I colored the stars with a gold gel pen and added little gems on the Christmas trees for some added sparkle.  Like I said, I am so happy with how the card came out!  I'm getting braver; I am actually going to try using digital paper and design my next digi card on that!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting!  I hope you and yours have a happy and safe holiday whichever you celebrate.  Fondly, Christi
