Today’s video was inspired by a card I saw that had been made by Debbie Henderson, one of the top demonstrators in the US. I found the video she made at the time and CASE’d it to share with you today. This is the link to Debbie’s blog about her 5 Panel Fancy Fold card which she posted in October 2016: https://debbiesdesignsblog.blogspot.com/search?q=5+panel+fancy+fold+card
On Debbie’s page, if you scroll down you’ll find two pages you can download, i.e. the pattern and templates for the Designer Series Paper (DSP) layers. In the video, I show how to work out how to calculate the shape and size of the DSP layers. If you’re not interested in knowing how this is done, please download from Debbie’s blog. While there, have a look around because she has some great card designs! When you’ve finished looking at the 5 Panel Fancy Fold blog, click on HOME and that will bring you up-to-date.
If you saw my blog yesterday, you’ll recognise the snowflake. Before I started recording the video, I stamped both sentiment labels and made one snowflake each. If you’re a regular viewer, you’ll know that when I do this, on camera I always do “one of everything” to show how it’s done and to make sure I don’t jump anything! I never assume everyone can guess how I did something and I always remember I get a lot of new crafters on my channel, too! 😀
The Pool Party card is my prototype and the Highland Heather is the card I made on the video. The two sentiments are both from the Yuletide Pasture Stamp Set. As you know, I have a real problem with getting things straight so I included a demonstration in the video how I set up my Stamparatus to achieve straight sentiments! On this occasion, I stamped directly onto the die-cut.
If you don’t have a Stamparatus, you might like to put it on your Christmas wish list! I had always been very anti-stamp positioners until Stampin’ Up! (SU) brought this gem out and now I do most of my stamping with it! The design of our Stamparatus blows all other stamp positioners right out of the water. Do bear in mind, SU has requested that we get our orders in by 9th December 2020 if we want delivery in time for Christmas! That’s it from me today. I wish you a blessed Sunday and please take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.
