Sometimes I like to add little surprises to the inside of my cards. Often times we think about the outside of the card, and and the inside. I call this card an inside out card - it's just as pretty on the inside as it is on the outside!
I started this card by using my i-Brush Blender Brushes to blend pale pink and tan inks onto my card front. I wanted to keep the color palette soft and slightly antique-y. Once my stenciling was complete I used the globe die from the Hello World Die Set to die cut the front of my card. You want to be sure that you open your card base before die cutting! You only want to cut the front panel of your card, not the back. And I should mention that this design will work whether you're creating a top fold card - like me - or a side fold. So however you fold your card, just make sure it's opened before you cut!
I looked through the die cut globe opening in the front of my card and lined up a sentiment from the Wonderful World Stamp Set and stamped the sentiment in the center of the window. I didn't take into account that my die cut shape would be left side heavy, but don't worry I will fix that later. If you recreate this card I would do this next step before stamping. I die cut the same globe from the Hello World Die Set from light pink cardstock and used my scissors to cut out the center of the image. Then I added glue and puzzle pieced it into the window cut out. Now you can see the globe on the outside and the inside of the card!
To fix the lopsidedness of my sentiment I added some gems to the globe. I kept them right side heavy to even out my design. This card is so easy to recreate and I love that it's pretty on the inside, too! See you again soon!
