This card is my attempt at two new techniques, yes TWO (and it only took me ALL day, good thing I don't work for Hallmark, or I'd be fired for sure.
This first: spray on ink.
I got some Smooch Spritz on clearance, and thought I give them a try... I watch a "how to" video on the web, looked easy enough... I should have known when the girl on the video had a little box build just to use these things, that they are something I should just walk away from..LOL Oh my GOSH - what a mess, I had that stuff sprayed everywhere! I better stick with paper and ink pads, don't think I will use them again.
The second: My first downloaded video.
Over the past few years I have received really cute birthday cards from friends and family that were to cute not to find a way to re-use them. They have these little noise boxes in them, that sing, or talk. I decided to take one apart, and figure out how to put them in one of my own. I've had this little flip share video camera for a while now. I haven't taken the time to really figure out how to download the videos on the computer. I guess I never had a reason too. Until I made this card, I wanted to share with you what it sounds like when you open it.
This is what it looked like inside the Hallmark card after I peeled back the layers, it has a replaceable battery (did they really think people were going to change it?
I know it's kinda lame .. I need to work on this video stuff, now that I am somewhat familiar of getting it on the web, I need to concentrate on the content and editing. Oh goody a new hobby LOL.
Well that's it for today.. and thanks for stopping in.
