Hello and Happy New Year!!! Tosh here, and I'm excited to bring you some new inspiration today. As card makers, we are used to picking out an image, deciding on a layout and how to frame it using dies, fussy cutting, or just leaving it as is on a one layer card. We also can "chop off" part of an image with diecutting or just letting it float off of the side of our card.
Well, today, I thought it would be fun to wrap the image around the card (or over the top) to leave a little surprise for the recipient on the back. I started by stamping the Artistic Bouquet image on a full sheet of cardstock (you can cut yours to size before stamping if you'd like.).
I then trimmed it to the size I wanted and folded it where I wanted the image to land on the front and back side of my card. Here's what is going to be the front of my card:
And here is the back side. You don't have to fold it until after all your coloring is done, but I wanted to get a feel of how it was showing on both sides as I colored it.
After I finished coloring it, I diecut a border on each end and adhered two separate scored panels to the inside to hide where the Copics soaked into the cardstock. At the top of the post, I shared the front of the card, and here is the back...
Lastly, I wanted to show you what it looks like fully opened.
Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you'll give this a try.
