Die cut cards... a video!!!

I have made a video to show how I make these little die cut cards like the one below.  I made this card for the current HA challenge - Complementary Colours.  This challenge is too hard!!!  Today's colours are purple and yellow!




Hope the video works - let me know if there's a problem.  It's not very good - but I don't have the right equipment to make it remotely professional.
Hope your week is going well.

Adorable card! I think you did a fantastic job with those really difficult colors. Thanks for showing how you made the die cut cards. I've just purchased that set, so I think I'm off to play!

Thank you so much for the video! I had been wondering how you made those with such clean lines! I just might have to try it! Thanks again! :)

HI, I think this is the first time I've left a comment on your blog, though I've been following it for a while. The video is great, Lucy. It looks pretty professional to me (does exactly what it says on the tin!). I'm interested to see that you have both the cutting blade and the scoring tool on your trimmer at the same time. I have the same trimmer, but swap them over when I need the scorer. Handy tip, thanks :)

Thank you for the video! This sounded so easy but for the life of me I couldn't grasp the concept until I watched. Lovely card.
