Vicki here, thanks so much for stopping by today,
I don't know about you but I don't consider my card done until I finish the inside. What about you? Do you always finish the inside of your cards?
I thought I would show a few of my "finished inside and out" cards to give you some ideas for finishing yours.
This is a card I did last year around Christmas time:
While making my flowers for the front, I made another to use on the inside:
I generally start with a layer of colored card stock that matches some I have used on the front. In this case it is a layer of Crumb Cake and then I layered some Confetti Cream card stock and also some embossed Cherry Cobbler. I then added a strip of crumb cake across the embossed piece.
You could just stop here, I finish alot of my cards like this, using embossed card stock or DSP that matches some I have used on the front.
On this card I added the flower that I had made that matches the one on the front. You can stamp a message on the inside, but I always leave mine blank for writing a personal message.
Here is another front:
I used card stock and DSP like the front and then
I die cut a couple of extra top notes to add to inside, to mimic the design on the front.
I also stamped a flower like the one used on the front.
Leaving plenty of room for writing a note to the recipient.
Finally one more:
and the finished inside:
I hope these will inspire you to finish your cards "inside and out".
