I hope you’re enjoying a beautiful weekend. We’re enjoying a very relaxing weekend because hubby isn’t working! Weekends like this don’t happen often so we really look forward to them, and make the most of them! Today’s video is a Subscriber’s Request! Going forward I’m going to introduce Subscriber’s Request as a regular monthly video feature.The criteria for a video request is that the video must be teaching something. For example, today’s video is teaching how to make a shaker card, in particular a masculine shaker card. One question today’s video answers is what do you use to put in a masculine shaker as an alternative to beads, sequins etc. As always there are other hints and tips about making shaker cards in today’s video. Do you have a card in your mind you’d like to see in a video? I currently have two requests on my list, and when I’ve made them, I’ll start Subscriber’s Requests in June 2019. Depending on the response I get, I’ll be doing one a month to see how it goes. If you’d like to request a video for June, please email me at email@example.com. To create today’s video, I used the Classic Garage Suite collection including the Classic Garage Designer Series Paper (DSP), the Garage Gears Thinlits Dies, and the Geared Up Garage Stamp Set. I die cut some cogs from two different colours of cardstock to go into the shaker. You can choose to use as many or as few colours as you like. The key to success with getting them to shake without getting stuck, is to only put a few cogs into the shaker. I put fifteen in my card, but I recommend between ten and twelve. This is one of those instances where less is more!The card I made on today’s video is the Tranquil Tide (green) and Crushed Curry (yellow) card. I prefer this card out of the two cards I’ve made. The sentiment I chose – Best Dad – makes this card suitable for a birthday or Father’s Day. I made the car by adhering five layers die cut cars. This mades the image thick and rigid; therefore there isn’t any need for any Dimensionals!
I hope you enjoy today’s video, and all the hints and tips I give you. I wish you a very blessed Sunday, and look forward to be back with you tomorrow. In the mean time,happy crafting.
