A Card a Day with Creativebug

 

We've teamed up with Creativebug to host A Card a Day with Hero Arts, where you will learn basic and advanced card making techniques with longtime Hero Arts educator, Libby Hickson.

Over the course of a month, learn how to stamp, emboss, die cut, and embellish like a pro. Make a project every day using methods and materials that can be adapted to cards for every occasion. Libby will guide you through common troubleshooting tips, innovative ways to use materials, and a variety of artistic effects to use on cards and paper projects. All of this inspiration and instruction will give you a jumpstart on making cards for the whole year.

Visit Creativebug for more details.
