Several months ago during the first Spring Card Camp for Online Classes Julie Ebersole showed how to take a coordinating die and use it to create a focal image that would show both on the front and inside of card. I decided to use that design trick for this card.
I stamped the image on a rectangle of Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black. The sentiment was stamped just below using Gina K. Designs Amalgam Ink. It was colored with Copic Markers and then using the coordinating die it was cut from the rectangle. I wanted to add some additional texture and visual interest and cut down the rectangle using a stitched die and then ran it through the big shot with an argyle embossing folder.
The embossed rectangle was placed on a top folding card base and the opening for the bundt cake was traced so it could be cut again from the cardbase. Once that was complete the embossed rectangle was adhered to the cardbase with liquid glue.
I used scissors to fussy cut around the die cut image so that it was right on the lines. This would make it easier for opening and closing the card once the image was in place. Foam tape was added to the back of the image and then adhered through the opening to the inside of the card. Now the image can be seen from both the front and inside of the card as seen below.
The final embellishment was to add some blue Nuvo Crystal Drops to the cake frosting and around the sentiment.
