Hi Everyone! Today on the Penny Black blog all of the designers are are sharing cards that are finished on the outside AND the inside. I often don't finished my cards on the inside expect during the holidays. Its fun to throw in a longer sentiment or add a giftcard holder or both.
I started the outside of the card with a fun Penny Black Mimi stamp layered on a simple scene that was cut out with Nestabilities Labels 8. I added a cork scalloped border, buttons, string and machine stitching to add a little bit of fun and interest.
On the inside I repeated the same Labels 8 die cut and added a Christmas sentiment. I thought it would be fun to tuck in a gift card. To ensure a perfect snug fit I placed the card on the back of the label using it as a guide to lay down my tape. I left about a 1/4 inch between the card and the tape on each side so it would easily move in and out but wouldn't fall out.
I plan on making a similar card with THIS stamp and using them for my son's preschool teachers this year.
