Weekend Video – Hello Card

Hi everyone and welcome back to this week’s “how-to” video! This weekend I’ve made a card with an interesting flower-shaped edge.

TIP: I get a number of questions about that little pillow I am using before heat emboss. Well it is actually an anti-static bag that makes sure your powder sticks only to your versamark outline and not all over. At this card I forgot to use it… so you see the dotted background isn’t perfect. This anti-static bag is also known as “magic embossing pillow” or “embossing buddy“. But you can always just use one dryer sheet.

If you enjoy my videos just subscribe to my blog or my YouTube channel and don’t forget to scroll down for a list of the supplies used.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this card. It is super cute. All the detail that went into making it is amazing. I love the last little added touch with the bug. Thank you so much for sharing. I was thinking while I was watching the video…what scissors you were using and I like that you added links so I can get me some. Thank you again!

    Love how you made the edge in to a decorative one!

    Also, I’ve never seen someone pull off glue dots with their fingers! I’ve always pushed my item to the strip of glue dots. When you put the item away, the dot goes with it!

      Thanks for the feedback Lisa! I do that as well if you watched any of my previews videos but this particular brand of dots isn’t sticky on fingers and I like that I have the opportunity to control the dots with my hands 🙂 Off to check your blog!

    I love your technique of keeping your embossing powder in plastic containers large enough to tap off the excess right back into it! Genius! I just went and bought 5 new Gladware containers to do the same thing.
