First of all, if you live in NE, congrats for surviving one more Nor’easter. I have some inside info that tells me there MIGHT be 2 more coming before the end of the month. Let’s put that right out of our minds and talk about good stuff: CARDS!!
Today is National Pi Day. It is a real thing. Math Geeks Unite! Actually, I am not a math geek….or even a math fan! But I do like me some pie!
I have a nephew who LOVES pie. He doesn’t like pie—He LOOOOOOOOVES Pie! If pie is being served, he needs an entire one–not a piece!
Well, yesterday, during the storm (we shoveled a total of 6(!) times! #lastfamilyinnewenglandwithoutasnowblower ), I realized that TODAY is Pi Day (3.14!). I know this thought came to me about 2 weeks too late for you to take advantage of this info but I thought I would make a video for you today. It is never too late to know some tricks for making a Pi(e) card!
(I apologize that my camera view wasn’t ideal. I will do better next time.)
The video really explains the card but I wanted to give you this tip: Spritz your cardstock before embossing! This is not new news. Stampin’ Up! recommended this to us when they first released Dynamic Embossing Folders. But I am sometimes a lazy crafter and didn’t really see the need for it. But let me tell you , after my research–I am a changed crafter!! I will forever more spritz my cardstock. Check out this difference:
Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day includes pie!
