Slimline Modern Christmas Card + Hero Arts Blog Hop

If the video does not display, please click here to watch on my YouTube channel. This video is also part of a blog hop for Hero Arts’ Winter release; you should have arrived from Nichol Spohr’s blog.

Just because you’re creating a Christmas card, doesn’t mean it can’t be colorful and outside the box! I used the Hero Arts Tri-Fold Edge Village die to make a modern Christmas card that has a lot of unique character! Did you notice that this is also a slimline card? I’ve been having so much fun creating these!

I decorated my colorful village die cuts with Hero Arts Icicle glitter and paired up some greetings from the Simon Says Stamp/CZ Design Clean Line Christmas set.

When I go to mail this card, I’ll use a Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red slimline envelope. These envelopes are so classy – and you don’t need extra postage if your card isn’t bulky!

Be sure to watch the video to see how I made this fun Christmas card! Do you love getting a head start on your holiday cards?

    WOW!!! You go girl!!! Love your brightly colored outside the box card, and since you did a slimline card, you had plenty of room to extend your village all the down the card. Great job Nina.
