Card Layout 32

Todays layout is for steampunk, machinery, mechanics or maybe even one for the horologist?! Or any one else that likes a big cog.

Stop laughing.

Anyway, here’s the layout and the card that was inspired by it.

  1. So cool John, I love the look of this card so much. I think it’s a masculine card and would be good for a friend who is handy and loves vintage.
    By the look of the card I realy thought you had sand the brown cardstock but by watching your video I know better now LOL.
    Thank you again for a great layout and video, stay safe and have a wonderful evening.

  2. Love the card, have the cog dies and have used them for lots of reasons and for male and female, my favourite was for a friend who had a bicycle accident both person and bike were broken, so made a get well card stating’ hope your cogs are well and back together soon’ it was well recieved and i made a range for a craft stall and all went.used embossing folder and stencil and distress inks in varying degreesand gilding polish. its good fun placing the cogs in patterns thinking that they would actually work if real. Cogs can be silver as well as the usual for those who like a sparkling clean look- i preferred grunge.
    love the sentiment on your card. you have a brilliant eye for a good sentiment.

  3. Hi John

    Love it 😁 my Grandad was a Horologist and I have more than a passing interest in the subject so this card is right up my street.

    Things have been pretty messy health wise so I’ve been a bit absent but I have loved seeing these layouts. When I get a chance I will add them to my Pins.

    Big hugs to all, T x

  4. I really love this card John so different and inspiring. I have some cog dies never used them, now I will. I am curious how long do these videos actually take you to make and edit because they are so interesting start to end and the commentary at times makes me giggle. Xx

    • Thanks for asking.

      Some stages are done in batches, some can only be done in real time but here’s a basic outline of the steps required for each card…

      1. Plan/Draw the layout.
      2. Gather supplies.
      3. Record the video (in real time anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes).
      4. Take photos of the card.
      5. Edit the photos.
      6. Edit the video.
      7. Add commentary to the video and render it out.
      8. Upload the video and do all the necessary YouTube admin.
      9. Create the blog post.
      10. Create the social media posts.

      It’s a lot.
