Hero Arts + A2Z Scrapbooking Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts + A2Z Scrapbooking Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating A2Z Scrapbooking as a new Hero Arts digital retailer. Currently, A2Z offers a selection of our digital goodies, but in the coming weeks, they will be adding to their collection and stocking the entire range.  So artists from A2Z and Hero Arts have teamed up to provide you with a whole host of inspiration and fun using these digital products.
Today I created a vellum window card using two digital products: The Firmament digital kit and the Constellation printable.

First, I printed the sentiment in black on white cardstock and the blue constellation background onto vellum.
Then I die cut the medium sized star from the Stylish Stars Frame Cuts to create a window on the sentiment panel. I also die cut the same star on my card base, so the vellum star would be visible from the inside of the card as well.
The small scattered stars are from the Star Background Fancy Die. I just colored them with a rainbow of Distress ink colors and covered them with Glossy Accents.
And here's what the card looks like opened...
To add to the excitement, A2Z Scrapbooking will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky commenter. Prize winners will be randomly selected from ALL comments received on the participating designers’ blogs. The more comments you leave along the hop, the better your odds of winning, so be sure to comment on every blog! You have until Sunday August 31st at 11:59 EST to leave your comments and the winner will be announced on the September 3rd on the A2Z Scrapbooking blog.
The next (and final) stop on the hop is the A2Z Scrapbooking blog

Thanks for stopping by!
