Don't Forget the Front and the Inside!

When I'm creating cards...I often just focus on the front...after all that is what you see first :). I forget to add little touches to the inside or back of the card. These little touches add so much more to your card...kinda like sprinkles on cupcakes.

I used the pattern paper from Prima this month to add my extra touch to the inside of one card and for the back of another.

Here is the front anniversary card I made for my honey.

For the inside of my card, I used the Prima pattern paper that already had "With You" printed on it. I then stamped "Forever" below it. I love the extra touch it made to the card!


My next card is for my sister's birthday. This time I added the pattern paper to the front and back of the card. I love that cute bird and the "So Lucky" words.

Do you often add that extra touch to the inside or back of your cards? Go ahead...give it a try!



  1. Brilliant, Melanie! I don't do this... and I should. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  2. Adding the extra is an exercise for me right now! I usually only have a few scraps. When I post my cards sometimes comment ers ask what's inside and I'm like huh??? Those are pretty btw!

  3. I am just geting to this point too. I want to start making my own envelopes, lining the envelopes and adding this kind of extra touch to the inside too. I just wish there were more hours in the day!
