  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of this card.. thanks so much for sharing and your instructions make it so easy…cant wait to make a card like this for my mother's birthday…she loves quilts and this looks quilt like to me!

    THANKS for sharing!

    “Oh Diane, thank you so much for your lovely comment!!!  You just made my day.  I hope your mom loves your card.  Will I see you at convention?  I will be swapping cards!”

  5. Deb says:

    “Oh my goodness, thank you so much for mentioning me on your blog!  I’m honored!”

  6. Deb says:

    Thank you for giving me credit.  I loved your cards also!

  7. Thanks for the video! I now get it…and will be going off to make my own. Just LOVE this.

  8. Deb says:

    YIPPPPPEEEEE Diane,  I’m so glad that my videos are understandable :0)  Enjoy, it’s a lot of fun!  thank you for your lovely comment.

  9. I love your chevron card! I’m going to do it in Christmas colors. Is there anyway you can demo how to make the ribbon you used on that card? Thanks

  10. I forgot to say that the ribbon I need to know how to do is on the chevron card with the green ribbon going down the right side! Thanks again.

  11. Deb says:

    Hi Tracee, I’d love to show you how to do the ribbon but which one?  There were three different cards.

  12. Deb says:

    Hi again Tracee…that is a very easy bow to make.  Just take a piece of ribbon and glue the ends together, then just put a smaller piece round the one you glued the ends together.  I will add it to my next video.  Make sure you subscribe to me on YouTube.  thank you for stopping by.

  13. Hi Deb, thanks for the reply! you are so quick! I spent an hour this morning looking at the chevron card in question after i received your reply. I kept telling hubby there’s a step missing. Duhhh, i figured it out. I realized you glued a strip of ribbon to the top layer hiding the ends between the fist and second layers and then made the bow. Right? LOL I’ve had 4 major strokes and my brain is very slow. I used to do this for a living believe it or not. I once owned the largest rubber art stamp manufacturing business in the US. Now I hand make cards for physical and mental health therapy, for family and friends. I’ll subscribe to your your youtube videos, as I have done with other youtube favorites, but I don’t really know what happens after that to see your new videos. LOL Told u I’m slow. Thanks so very much for your quick reply.

  14. Deb says:

    Oh Tracee you are a TRUE inspiration!!!  That is amazing.  I’m so glad you like my work and you can ask me questions ANYTIME!  Thank you for subscribing to my YouTube Channel.  Just copy and paste this link  into your computer and when you get to my channel, just hit the SUBSCRIBE button and wah lah…everytime I upload a new video, it will come directly to your email.  It’s that easy!  Remember, if I can be of any help to you, just let me know.  Take care.

  15. So it’s that easy! Cool beans and Thanks again.

    Sometimes I can’t decide which side of DSP to use. Now I don’t have to decide. Thanks Deb.

  17. Deb says:

    Hi Sue, ha ha ha!!!!!  I’m the same way!  Wait until you see today’s post and what I made with the DSP!  My favorite DSP in this new mini catalog is the Watercolor Wonder DSP.  What’s yours?

  18. Sharon Walker says:

    Deb–I used your technique to make a card for the shoebox swap hosted by Brian King, and everybody loved it! Your directions were so easy to follow–thank you so much for sharing them!!


  19. Deb says:

    Thank you Sharon, I’m so happy it helped.  If you ever have a question, please let me know.  deb

  20. Lisa P says:

    Am I the only person who had used a 5.5 x 4″ piece of paper?

  21. Deb says:
