Celebrate Today, Important Dates + Design Inside of Cards

Welcome to Wednesday! I hope that your day is going well so far. 🙂

I have a card to share today that is a CASE (copy and share everything) from Pinterest. You can see Teneale’s card HERE. I changed up a few things because I didn’t have all of the same supplies as her original.

I had a sweet comment from a girl named April (Hi-April! 🙂 ). She asked for some direction on how to keep the design flowing into the center of the card. I didn’t have too many resources for her to check out. As I was editing this card I realized that I had a little something to share with April (and the rest of you!). Here is the inside of this card:

One way to coordinate the inside of the card to the front is to stamp an image from the same set on the inside. If I am using a dark colored card stock for my card base I always add a light colored layer, usually Whisper White, like I did here. I stamped the solid balloon image and a few extras like the ribbon and balloon string. Of course, I added a sweet sentiment to the inside too. Petite Pairs is a great set for sentiments!

Another way to coordinate the inside to the outside is to use a strip of Designer Series Paper. If you used it on the outside then it’s a given to match on the inside! I hope this helps you see some new possibilities.

I also received a question from Lauren! She has some questions about retiring lists and the NEW Catalog dates. I actually just marked my calendar yesterday with all of these important dates!

IMPORTANT DATES

  • April 21st: Retired List is released. Remember-accessories and items that are NOT stamp sets are only going to be available while supplies last!
  • May 6th: I will be placing an order for NEW Catalogs to be mailed to my customers that have placed $50 (or more) in orders with me in the last year. If this is you–be on the look out for your FREE catalog–expected to ship out around May 12th! If you would like me to send you a catalog (and you have not placed $50 in orders) I can send a PayPal invoice for $5.00 from May 1st-May 6th. Contact me if you would like to order your own catalog!
