This should have been a straightforward card. My younger son's birthday is later this month (he's 30 - how is that possible? I'm only 24! 😆 ) and I wanted to make his card.
It turned into a bit of a learning curve. To begin with, I forgot that ink takes FOREVER to set on vellum and wiped off the embossing. I also made a hash of trimming the vellum strip to size. I thought I'd filmed myself correcting it, but can't find the clip (it may have been a casualty of the great iMac collapse of 2017 - see my previous post for details!)
Anyway, in case you wanted to know, I straightened out my wonky trimming by going old-school - I used a craft knife and ruler. I was awake enough to remember to use a cutting mat - then decided to trim the edge of the card while I was at it, but after I'd put the cutting mat away...and cut right through my silicone mat. Sigh. Luckily, I wasn't filming that bit, because I said some very Bad Words.
After all that, if you still want to see the tutorial, here it is...
See you again soon and keep crafting!
