"Panel Card Parts 1 & 2" Video Tutorial

"Panel Card Parts 1 & 2" Video Tutorial

I’m Barbara Nicolato, (Nic’s Knacks), Design Team Member. This tutorial follows me through making the card, and cutting it into panels with matting.  Because the video is lengthy, I’ve made it into a part one and a part two (released together) to better suit your time constraints.

I recommend following the cutting process that I demonstrate on the video even though the dimensions are given below the video.  I’m sure many of your already-made creations can be changed into a panel card. I hope you’ll give it a try and post yours in our Face Book groups so we can all enjoy our creations.
