Using Dark Foregrounds for Window Dies

Am I still on my kraft cardstock kick? Yes, yes I am. Thanks for asking.

It's just perfect for fall, that's all.

With window dies, I love to use them with darker cardstock and lighter backgrounds for a sort of hopeful mood - like a light at the end of the tunnel sort of feel. Or in today's case, a feeling like you are emerging from a forest into a field. 

I'm glad everyone is leaning into mushrooms this year too - it makes me happy. 

This die is from the upcoming kit, and it has a matching stencil, which is why the coloring matches the die details so perfectly. 

I have some other SUPER fun cards and a video that will be on the Hero blog in the next week that you won't want to miss with some fall goodness. So stay tuned!
