Pootles’ Springwatch Field Flowers Card Cut and How To

Pootles’ Springwatch Field Flowers Card Cut and How To

Pootles' Springwatch Field Flowers Card Cut and How To

Making cards in videos is unusual for me, but I decided that this year’s SpringWatch series would have some in it and today’s card is one that I thoroughly enjoyed making, but more than that, it was a great opportunity for me to share with you all how I cut and layer my cards.

Pootles' Springwatch Field Flowers Card Cut and How To Wink of Stella Detail

Because I work with International A4 cardstock which is a metric size, I’m fully aware that we could get into the realms of the really complicated if I tried to do metric, imperial and imperial 8.5 x 11 measurements, so I never share the sets of measurements. Could you imagine me fumbling and stumbling over 3 sets of measurements?!?!?

So today I want to share the ‘how to’ of creating neat/pretty layers for your card blanks, mats and layers.

And of course, while we’re here, we may as well go a little further and finish off the card, so again, I share the principle of that with you too.

So please forgive me if I don’t add measurements under the video as I usually do, someone somewhere, (probably me) would get themselves in a tangle….

  1. So simple and beautiful. I enjoyed the video and liked your card very much.

  2. Thank you Sam, I have wondered how you layer your cards. Xo

  3. A very useful video. Thanks. I like the tip for the small layers – length twice the width. Thoroughly enjoy how natural you are in your videos. Your ability to laugh at your self is so refreshing and positive.

  4. Doreen Collins says:

    very useful to see how you build up your layers..thanks Sam x

  5. You would have gotten a chuckle if you could have seen me watching your video! As you reached for the Whisper White you had cut for your top layer, to cut the panels you were going to stamp on, I was shouting warnings to you –“No – No! Not that piece!” Then – when you discovered your boo-boo, I had to remind you that “I tried to warn you!!” I bet I was not the only viewer that had this reaction! But seriously – your insight into you determine the size for your layers and mats is most useful, and your go-with-the-flow attitude when slip-ups do occur validates all the rest of us!

  6. Jennifer H says:

    I shouted about the layer and you didn’t hear me either! I was so pleased it happened – in future I will keep my card base, mats and layers well to the side of my working area so it doesn’t happen to me (again!). Thanks for all the ideas about sizing.

  7. As Judy and Jennifer I shouted, too. But sorry, it wasn’t loud enough, was it? Well, it’s quite a long distance from Germany ;-)). So, what do we learn: always order enough paper and if a boo-boo happens, start laughing and craft on! Thank you once again for all the very good ideas you share with us!

  8. NIce cards and very beautiful colors!
