ETA: Finally got the video to upload ok – YAY!
Have yet to work out about embedding it in the bloggo here, but for now, you can at least click to check out the link at YouTube. Scroll down past my card to find the details! Rx
Hi all, how’s it going?
I’ve made a masculine card for today that uses another ‘DIY chevron’ pattern, as featured either this week in my Trend-Alert Tuesday post, here.
First I filmed my video tutorial of how to make the chevron paper – but that continues to test my patience… A day of filming and editing and fiddling about *and* it has taken countless failed attempts to upload the thing to YouTube. Still no joy. I am going to have to admit defeat unless I can get some feedback on what I am doing wrong there. I’ve been poking around on a few forums for advice – we shall see…. For now, I need to rest my weary brain.
Here’s the card though…
Keeping it simple and not too fussy for a guy…
I trimmed off a section of the card front at the right-hand side to give it some interest and added my chevron-pattern strip. Then I added a journaling spot to coordinate and layered up a stamped typewriter accent (October Afternoon), on kraft, and a greeting (Hero Arts – from a now discontinued set called ‘Message Tags’), embossed in white.
I am entering this into the challenge over at Catered Crop ‘Use Print’ on account of that text-inspired message stamp
Signing off, weary and boggle-eyed from looking at the screen all day… Rx
