I have been wanting to make a lot of videos featuring fun folds and today I made a Father’s Day card that was a shirt and tie shaped card. I found it to be so interesting when I saw the originator of the card make her video. At one point I think she gave mis-information, or I just wrote it down wrong, so had to make the first card over. I have to say, it’s a really easy card to make but naturally I made it harder than it needed to be. I used a double sided paper that had a weird Christmas pattern on the back. Since the sleeves of the shirt show the reverse of the paper, I needed to fix it as it looked really odd. At first I thought I’d just let it go, but then I started thinking about other people who might make the same mistake with their project and wouldn’t necessarily know how to fix it. I did warn people not to make the same mistake as I did, but the added benefit was a really finished looking card as compared to the other one that ended up having white sleeves on the back. I have to say, both cards had their own style, and they were a lot of fun to make.
I also made a graduation card that took forever because I kept having problems with my embossing powder. I really believe that when the weather is hot and humid, embossing becomes iffy. I’m not sure why I believe it, maybe I just have trouble with different colors of embossing powders. They could be old, I’m not sure, maybe they have a best used by date and I passed that date, darn.
I was asked to do a video on embossing powders and man am I worried about it, as I have a lot of fails with them as well.. Maybe I should consider buying an embossing buddy or maybe I could just find a buddy to emboss for me, haha.
