Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host this weeks Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast.
My challenge this week is to trim the front of your card to let the paper on the inside show. This will give us a chance to decorate the inside of our cards which is something that I rarely do...that's because I am just tooo lazy...LOL!!!
Here are the deets:
1. Fold your card base in half and then cut 1 1/2 to 2 inches off the front.edge.
2. Decorate the front without using designer paper as a background.
3. Use designer paper on the inside so when the card is closed, it shows.
4. Decorate the inside or add a sentiment.
My card features stamps from The Craft's Meow's Happy Owlentines Day set. An inch and a half was trimmed off the front edge and the image was paper pieced with papers from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush dp. The same paper was used on the inside. A small scalloped edge was added to the front and sewing, Spellbinder's heart diecuts, and a sentiment were added to the inside. This is going to be my hubby's Valentine....hope he likes it!!!
Thanks for dropping by...hope you can join in all the fun at the TLC Challenge!!!
