Today I'm sharing my video tutorial featuring the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Bold Prints backgrounds. The backgrounds this month are absolutely fabulous and make the most amazing cards! The Koi Pond Bold Prints Background and Parasol Pattern Bold Prints Background were stamped on dark Hero Hues cardstocks with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder before being colored with Polychromos Colored Pencils. I love how these pencils look on dark cardstock!

The cards were finished with stamped greetings. Rectangles were die cut from vellum using a Simon Says Stamp Basic Rectangles Die. The rectangle frame was die cut from gold mirror cardstock using a Simon Says Stamp A2 Thin Frames Die. A greeting from the Tranquility Stamp Set and the Kittens in Kimonos Stamp Set were stamped on the vellum rectangle with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The vellum was run through a Xyron Sticker Maker and adhered to the backgrounds. The frame was glued in place and the cards were finished with a scattering of sequins or droplets for a touch of embellishment!
These backgrounds were created the same but embellished with different dies and additional images!
