Oh me oh my. I’ve been dying to share this Inside Outside Card with you but have been waiting for it to be back in stock. (I get so frustrated when I go to buy something and it’s all out!) That said – they might go fast after this video. Just saying!

There are a few stamps that lend themselves well to having something going on both inside and outside – those somethings that line up. And when I saw Make My Tail Wag from My Favorite Things, I just knew I had to create a scene that continued from the outside to the inside of a card! It’s all done on the 80# Neenah, too (available in a 25 pack or ream) – the 110 would have been too thick for the layers on the front. Watch the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

So much FUN, don’t you think? It may have taken double the coloring time for this, but it’s totally worth the impact of that inside outside image. If you know of other stamp sets that would be perfect for this, let me know, I need to do it again! 🙂

I think the poor pup who’s lost his stick needs some new friends. Whatcha think?

How to align the stamping, inside and out

I didn’t film the stamping part – it took a bit to figure out using my MISTI – but basically I stamped the dog peeking over the fence for the inside first, and stamped one on tracing paper. I flipped it, then was able to line up the face for the other side. Does that make sense? If not I’ll try to do this with some other stamps sometime to show you the process. Way fun and easy once you get the hang of it!
