Partial Die-cutting Video

Hello, Crafters.

The video I posted this morning is my second HOW TO video and 
it shows how to do partial die-cutting. I first saw this technique used for
 this style of card in a video by Jesse Larsson about five years ago. 
As far as I can tell Jesse wasn't a Stampin' Up! demonstrator at that time and 
stopped making videos about four years ago. She put I ♥ U in her
 three windows, and I thought it looked fabulous, which is probably
 why it stayed in my mind all this time. Many thanks to 
Jesse Larsson for the inspiration for today's card!
Although it isn't strictly necessary, I made a template that can be used 
again and again in the future. This made today's video extra long, but 
the template will make it a fairly quick card to make. 

I certainly think it's well worth the time and effort to make a template, 
not only for this style of card, but any card you want to make that 
has three squares either vertically, or horizontally.

The ribbon I used in the video - the Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink 
card you see above - is actually Fresh Fig, but I think it goes with 
this colour combo brilliantly! 
My first order since the new 2018 - 2019 Annual Catalogue
 went live will be arriving tomorrow, and I have ordered this
 ribbon in all five of the 2017 - 2019 InColours!
The colour scheme I used for the card at the top is Night of Navy
 and the ink used also includes Melon Medley, which I found went really
 well with the retired Crushed Curry Ribbon you see on the first card.
That's about it from me today. I hope you enjoy the video, and
 until next time, happy crafting.
