It’s release day for the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero July 2021. If you missed my countdown card, make sure to check it out here. This release is full of magical forest ideas.
For my card today I kept it very clean and simple. I love that the image draws your eye to the center of the panel. Using the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero July 2021 kit you can make darling cards. Let’s check out the tutorial I have for today’s card.
You can watch the video here on the blog or over on my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.
Today I also have a bonus card for you today. I’m using the new Hero Arts Forest Vines Window Die. It makes the prettiest cards. I paired it with a smaller circle die from the Hero Arts Infinity Die set to make this shaker card.
I truly LOVE the way these cards turned out. It really makes my heart happy. We will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, July 11th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
Have a great day everyone and see you back here soon.

Hi, Dana – These cards are so cute! I love the idea of the diminutive stature of the gnomes… that the hammock support is a little flower. So sweet! I also love the shaker card – very pretty!
