So the voice overs just aren’t working for me at this time. Trying to voice over the video today was brutal lol. My Mac wasn’t having it & then I just plain ran out of time. Olivia’s naps just aren’t long enough for me to voice over + my mac doesn’t really enjoy voice overs so I am recording in like 5-10 second chunks which is excruciating! If I do any of these process type videos soon, I am just going to put them to music. I know some of y’all enjoy the explanations, but many of you mute the videos anyway. This video and blog post is a product of a couple of naps over the course of a couple of days lol. Next time, it will be much faster without the voice over attempt.
Anyhow, here is my card tutorial. I made this one for a friend who recently got a promotion.
For the sentiment, I had intended to use the Big Congrats sentiment which is an old SP & Company sentiment, but I decided against it. I didn’t like the inks overlapping & the sentiment just looked way too big on my card. To fix this, I grabbed a piece of scrap paper and stamped a skinnier sentiment on the strip, matted it onto some white cardstock, and then attached it to the card. This covered up the stamping fail & I thought it looked a ton better with a skinnier sentiment popped up on another layer of cardstock. The celebrate sentiment is from the same stamp set as the balloons, called Celebrate Today.
