I can't believe it's been 3 weeks since I last wrote on here! It's been quite manic here at the manor with cars breaking, getting ready for a christening and general busy life! This card class was meant to take place in June but with the hubby being away for work, it didn't actually happen until July!
This month I chose to do a card class all about the inside of the card! We make so many cards where all the detail is on the outside, we often leave the inside blank or just add a sentiment.
At this card class we made 3 totally different cards where the front was pretty....but the insides are BEAUTIFUL!
This card measures 4, 1/8" x 5, 3/4" and uses DSP from the Medallions collection, in my fabourite new colour Lemon Lime Twist! I have kept it very simple by using the new Happy Birthday Thinlit cut in White & Basic Black then layered to give a shadown effect. As nice as this die looks when cut in one colour, I prefer to use it this way as it really does pop off the page!
The balloons and sentiment at the bottom come from the coordinating stamp set, Happy Birthday Gorgeous.
The inside is definitely more glamourous! This card is known as the "Twist and Pop" card as the centre of it lies flat when the card is closed (obviously!) and as you open the card, the centre part twists and pops out!
I have decorated the individual panels using the coordinating cardstock and ink, and used more stamps from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.
This card was really fun to make, and looks alot more complicated than it actually is.
If you would like to learn how to make this card, or would like to order any of the items we used, please do get in touch.
Looking forward to showing you Part 2 tomorrow....!
