I hope you're enjoying the weekend.
This morning I uploaded my Double-Layer Tree Card video onto YouTube.
It's one of several projects I've made this week using the fabulous Limited Edition, Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set & Dies Bundle that will be available between 02-31.08.16 only.
I had to do a retake when I was making this video which resulted in me having two spare "tree layers"!
After I'd finished recording the video, I collected the rest of the cardstock I needed to make another card using the surplus tree parts!
I changed the card around slightly from the video version by making it a wedding card.
I positioned the two birds to face each other, like lovebirds, and I sat them on a Vellum heart - please see the first two photographs.
Photograph 3 - the Sweet Sugarplum birthday card is the card I made during the video.
Photograhs 5 & 6 - the first card I made was the Blushing Bride one.
I loved the idea I'd come up with on this card but I was disappointed with the sentiment because it looks off-balance.
Later today I'll create a new sentiment that I can adhere on the front of this card to cover what's there at the moment.
Photograph 4 - the Mint Macaroon card is the card I made immediately before recording the video.
I always do this, so I can write a list of all the cardstock and measurements needed for the project, as well position of score lines, layering die sizes, etc.
Not only does this help me make sure I have everything ready before I start filming, I also find it very useful to refer back to it when editing the video.
I also find this record invaluable if I ever need to refer back to a video - I can frequently find information I need in my book rather than having to sit and watch a video all the way through!
That's about it for today. Happy Sunday.
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
