Inside Out

Front of card when closed



Flower is really on inside of card





JustRite Friday Challenge 025: Inside Out


This week's JustRite Friday Challenge has been turned inside out! They want to see us use some of their sentiment stamps BOTH on the inside of our card as well as the outside of the card.    You should join in on the fun!

As stated above, this JustRite challenge is called "Inside Out".  I decided to make part of the inside of my card pop out on the front when closed.  This is really going to be an "Inside Out" card!!!   Of course I still need to create a card with a JustRite verse on the inside as well as the outside.  I started with a 5.5" pink card.  A piece of Basic Grey design paper was cut to fit the front.  I stamped the sentiment from the JustRite  "My Garden" set on pink card stock and cut it out with a scalloped Nestie. It was attached to the front.  I then took a circle Nestie that fit inside of the border and cut a hole through the stamped border, design paper, and the front of the card.  I wanted a hole to see inside my card.  A pink ribbon was added along the bottom and some punched butterfiles and pearls added.

With the hole cut out of the center of the frame I now had a frame to place my flower from the JustRite  "Plant A Little Love" set.  I stamped the hydrangea using black  ink and colored it with Copic markers and cut it out.  I then punched out some pink vellum flowers using the Martha Stewart punch and glued them to the flower to make it dimensional.  This was attached to that circle I cut out using dimensionals.  Next I cut out the Spellbinder Lotus pendant in brown card stock.  The flower image was attached in the center of the Lotus design.  The circle with the flower design was pushed through the hole so when it was attached to the back of the card it would fit perfectly.  There was Pro Glider adhesive on the back of the lotus design and when I closed the lid it attached in the perfect spot. 

One of the reasons I love JustRite stamps is because they have "tons" of verses and I was looking for something that would fit perfectly with the greeting on the front of the card which reads "Friends are Flowers in the Garden of Life".  I found the perfect JustRite verse I wanted to use, but it was not in a shape I could use on my card.  The verse I wanted to use is from the JustRite  "Stitched With Love" stamp set which fits into the 2 3/8" round stamper.  I couldn't let that stop me so I stamped the verse on pink card stock and just cut out each word I wanted.  I then added these words to a  strip of the design paper and placed it  inside.  So happy; now my card says exactly what I want. 

All the products used to create this card were purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Well my Inside Out card is really Inside Out.  I love the way it turned out.  What do you think?

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday weekend.
