A sweet little birthday card and another video tut...

I'm back today with another By Lori Designs Inspiration Tuesday post!  For my card today I've used the adorable digi from the Little Beans line called Olive.  This card layout is one of my favourites.  Its super fast, easy, only uses 3 pieces of paper but still looks a bit fancy with the complete scalloped edges!  I used lots of bright fun colours and added some teeny tiny butterflies from my SU Sizzix Embosslits die.  The sentiment, (my go-to Birthday sentiment) is from Wax Fruit Comapany

Here's a little close-up of the butterflies...(I think I need to clean my camera lens)

I've been asked by a few people how I make the base of these kinds of cards.  There are a ton of tutorials out there since I've figured it out but I thought I'd try one of my own and show you how I do it.  Like I mentioned when I posted my first YOUTUBE tutorial, I'm just having fun, and playing around with my video camera and movie editing software.  I still haven't figured out all the 'editing' in's and out's like how to speed things up etc...so I apologize for the length of this video but thanks for watching! 

Make sure you swing by the By Lori Designs blog to see the rest of the wonderful inspiration.
Have a great week!
