I know this is an older tutorial. I try to add videos to those tutorials that are featured in the newsletter. The Grid technique was one of the techniques in yesterday’s newsletter.
For this video I used all Unity stamps.
I started with a 2 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I added the score lines with my Scor-Pal. The Tea Time Pattern Background was stamped in second generation Old Paper Distress ink. Then the bird from the August 2009 KOM was stamped in Vintage Photo Distress ink over it. I sponged the edges of the cardstock first with the Old Paper, then with the Vintage Photo ink and adhered it to a Chocolate Chip scallop rectangle that had been cut with the largest of the Classic scallop rectangle Nestabilities.
The sentiment is from the February 2009 KOM. It was stamped in Vintage Photo ink on Shimmery White cardstock, punched out with the large oval punch and layered on a Chocolate Chip Scallop Oval Punch-out.
The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock folded in half. It was layered first with a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, followed by a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Fancy Pants Patterned Paper. Before adhering these two layers to the card base, I paper pierced the edges and wrapped ribbon around them. The ribbon was also threaded through my main image. I had cut a slid on lower right hand side for that. The ribbon is Satin May Arts ribbon. I LOVE wider ribbon now and have a hard time using thin one.
Here is a video for the visual learner:
