Clean and Simple Design (with Video Tutorial) – by Jill Hilliard

Good Wednesday morning!

Jill is with us today. She has a strikingly simple card design to share with a quick little video to go along with. She created a birthday card, but changing out the sentiment allows this card design to give you miles and miles of use. Take a look:

Simply striking!

Note the use of score lines above and beneath the paper strips, giving this card such a polished and professional look.

Swapping out the sentiment turns this card into a lovely creation for so many other occasions or needs.



Watch Jill’s video to see just how quick and easy this card is.

I have always loved the formality and the crispness of cards done in black and white, and this one hits the nail on the head. But I can also imagine this in so many other color combinations, too, that would be so lovely.

So beautiful. Classy. Clean, simple and easy to create.

And it’s flat for mailing, too!

I always enjoy making up sets of cards to gift, and this design would make up into a wonderful assortment of all occasion cards.

You can find Jill’s post on her blog here.
