It’s What’s on the Inside That Counts

March 2, 2014 No Comments

That’s what we’ve been told since we were young. It’s more important to be beautiful 0n the inside than the outside.  I seem to have taken that to heart in a whole new way with today’s creation.  In fact, I started on the inside and then thought, “hmm, now what am I going to do on the outside.”  But, let’s back it up a moment.

If you watched the video with yesterday’s post, you’ll remember what I said about the die cut piece from the sticker label.  That’s what came into play today.  I saw the piece sitting there and thought “pop up”.

Here’s my clean and simple outside.  It makes for a good fast and fab card.

Clean and Simple Outside

 

I used Raspberry Ripple as my base cardstock.  Then I layered on Blushing  Bride cardstock followed by a piece of designer paper from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack.  I finished with a piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and a strip of Silver 1/8″ Ribbon.  Final details were a 7/8″ Scallop punch of Silver Glimmer paper overlaid with a Vintage Faceted button.

And, this could have been all…..but isn’t.

 

 

 

Happy Birthday Inside

 

 

As I mentioned at the beginning, I started inside and worked to the outside.  I’ve used Another Great Year inked in Raspberry Ripple.  I stamped it twice, once on Whisper White and once on Blushing Bride.  The Whisper White piece was cut in the Big Shot with a Labels framelit.  Then I pulled out my trusty paper snips and cut the banner from the Blushing Bride piece.  The banner pieces were layered onto the Whisper White using Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the image is not flat.  Finally, I added some Silver Glimmer Paper circles that were punched with the Owl Builder Punch and placed them randomly across the back and just onto the lower part of the card so that they look light confetti bits.

 

 

 

It's a Pop Up

 

 

 

And here’s a side view so that you can see that it is a pop up.  I used a Spiral Flower die cut to create the pop up mechanism.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So while I could have created the outside and had a nice card, it’s what is on the inside of this one that counts.
