Card Inserts can help you to make your design look really special ... so when the card is done don't just leave the inside blank.
Make the inside as special as the front and follow the theme through to the insert.
So! there you have your finished card and you have spent ages making it really beautiful.
You stand back and admire your handy work, and you are really pleased with the result ... but wait ... what is it that is missing?
Well have you any ideas about the inside of it?
Have you given any thought to what you will do with that to make it look really special and to compliment the outside that you have lovingly created?
Perhaps you have a really appropriate verse that you want to add that conveys your feelings to the recipient.
Why not print it off onto some vellum or coloured parchment to match the overall scheme of your design.
Die cut the shape out and add it to the inside
Then complete the insert with some flowers, gemstones and flourishes.
Use a border punch, or dies to add more décor to the top and bottom of the inside panels.
And keep the colours the same throughout for a co-ordinated look, and match the verse to the occasion.
Or maybe you would prefer to just carry the theme of the card through to the inside, and use some of the papers you used for the front.
Matting and layering can give you a finished look if you use the same papers and maybe wrap with some ribbon before adding it to the inside of the card
The things you add to the inside can all make your card stand out from the crowd... and that is something we all want to achieve whenever we make or give a card.
And don't forget to add on to the back of the card
"Handmade by....your name"
So now that you have successfully dealt with inside of your card, and the design itself it's time to consider another aspect.
If there is a lot of dimension to your card, created with flowers, then you can always match the theme through to a box especially made for your card. This makes it really something of a gift rather than just a card.
There are several videos to show you how to
