Cards, Inside & Out by Tania


I hope you enjoyed our Cosmo Cricket DeLovely Hop over the weekend! I'll be announcing our card sketch winner and random blog hop winner in tomorrow's post. Each will receive a Cosmo Cricket DeLovely Crafting Kit and SRM Stickers Prize Package. Thank you for stopping by and taking part in our Hop!

You saw what Tania did with our June theme, Here Comes the Sun, last week (click HERE), now check out what else she's done using more Cosmo Cricket DeLovely and SRM Stickers...her talent runs deep!

Tania will take it from here...

Today, I want to show you how to take your handmade cards to the next level while still making use of your SRM stickers in the process.



I’ve seen enough handmade cards to say that the majority of card makers abandon ship after decorating the front of their cards and they aren’t always conscientious of what pokes through the front of the card to the inside flap.



While a handmade card is always beautiful, my examples show you how spending just 2 extra minutes can take your card from simply handmade to beautifully finished with a completely polished look both inside and out.



How? Embellish internally!



This can be done simply by repeating one portion of the design or pattern, from the front of the card, on the inside and finishing the look with a sentiment sticker.








Thank you, Tania, I'm in awe! I have so many more projects for you this week, don't go far. :)

Tania these are just wonderful and it teaches me NOT to skimp on the inside. You have inspired me to take do more with the insides of a card.
