Lucy's Cards - a video

I've been getting lots of questions and requests for new digital tutorials, so thought I'd oblige...
Here is a short video on how to manipulate 12 x 12 digital papers for card making.  In the video, I show how I created the background paper for THIS card, turning a gorgeous 12 x 12 papers from THIS yummy digikit into a 5 x 4 rectangle, keeping the lovely distressed edges on all 4 sides.


Don't forget to check out my other videos and tutorials by clicking on the 'Videos and Tutorials' tab at the top of my blog, or clicking HERE.
And let me know if you have any requests for future productions ;)
And to finish, here is a card I made using the technique in the above video. the only difference is that I changed the paper to Greyscale before printing.  This card is for the Cute and Fun challenge at Moxie Fab World.  Love this challenge..

Happy Wednesday.

Thanks for the video, it's full of great info. What paper do you print your digital paper designs on? Do you use regular cardstock or something more lightweight? Your papers always look so crisp and they are perfect for the stitching that you add.
blessings to you!

So helpful Lucy.. I always seem to get funny looking pieces and waste so much paper.

Great tutorial, I am a novice with digi, how do you get the image and text on the paper? A tutorial on how to build a card from scratch would be fab, love the Noah's ark one you made but I don't know how to get the stamps onto the paper........I am a bit dim.....LOL, any tips appreciated.

Hugs

WOW this was awesome! Just what a newbie like myself needed to stop the helpless slaughter of good paper :o)
Thanks Lucy!

ooo Lucy, i would love to see how you do the inside of your cards. I feel almost like a vandal at the thought of writing inside one of them but i know that something has to go in there right?? :o)
