My Monthly Hero October 2018 Card Kit -- Special Ultra Dimensional Pop Up Card

I had so much fun creating 3 cards that are the same yet very different.  Hurry over to Hero Arts to get this kit as it is still available as of this writing.

Here is a video, some images, and a list of supplies and dimension to help you make your own :)


Card #1 - Pictured In the Video Link - Closed
Card #2
Card #2 - Closed
Card #3

Card #3 - Interior Detail


I created a box/book card because I wanted to include this tree.  I die cut 7 of the tree with the center die included out of green card stock, folded 6 of them in half and then glued the centers to the remaining tree to create this delightful little tree.

Exciting things are happening over at www.spellbinderspaperarts.com

Crafters rave about these amazing products for many reasons.  Here are just a few......
  1. FSJ Stamps are made in the USA of deeply etched red rubber for a perfect impression every time.
  2. The thin metal dies are made of steel to give you clean cuts time and time again, without warping or dulling.  And, they're coated in FSJ green so they're easy to find!
  3. They offer over 50 exclusive colors -- matching cardstock, ink, ribbon, and accessories makes creating easy!
  4. Over 50% of their stamps have coordinating dies -- no more fussy cutting!
This is my first time playing with them and I am delighted with how they work.  Check out the cards I created!

This first card is created using the Branch & Cone Die Set and the Stay Cozy Stamp Set from Fun Stampers Journey and the Spellbinders Grateful Doily Die Set makes a great backdrop for this 6 x 6 card.
