Elizabeth Craft Designs' Inside Out Challenge

Hello Followers,

Today I am excited to share with you my "Inside Out" card which is part of the Elizabeth Craft Designs' Challenge Blog. 

A lot of us tend to create cards without a second thought of the inside of the card. I know I for one do this and then when it is time to send the card to it's recipient we have to stop and finish the inside. So this week for our challenge we are not only completing the front of the card but also the inside. Take a look below at my sample to see this "ready to give" inside out card. 

This A2 size card was so much fun to create. 

Step 1:
The stamp set used here is called "Jungle Cuties" Color your this little guy with Copic markers or any other coloring medium of your choice. Stamp a second elephant and fussy cut just the ear and pop it up with some foam tape to add some dimension. 

Step 2: 
Cut a card base for an A2 sized card. (5.5 x 8.5") score and fold. Cut one piece of patterned paper for the background measuring 5.5" x 4.25"and glue to card front. 

Step 3: 
Cut a yellow strip from patterned paper. (5.5"x2"). Cut two piece of teal colored ribbon approximately 6" each. Adhere these to the yellow stripe of paper before attaching to the card front.

Step 4:
Die cut layers using the following die sets. Labels & Circles & Fitted Circles. The largest label is adhered with foam tape as well as the elephant and the extra elephant's ear.

Here is a close up of my coloring.

Lastly the INSIDE of this fun card.... It is  decorated similar to the front layers of the card. This card is officially ready for gift giving. Just jot down a personal message and mail to a friend.

Crafty Hugs, Melanie
