Clean Finish Question
Inside a large card I made showing a few layers of cardstock and designer paper
When making any paper craft, especially cards, you can use techniques like wrapping ribbon around the card...or stitching the card.**************************
How do you make a clean finished look on the inside of the card? I mean, no one wants to see the messy stitches on the inside!
That's a great question.
What I normally do is finish the layer I want on the front of my handmade greeting card
, stitching, wrapping ribbon around it, pushing brads through it etc, then I layer that finished design onto my card blank. There will always be a whole piece of cardstock between the front image and the inside of the card that way. I did that for the inside of the card I show you above. Not only are there layers of cardstock and Designer paper to strengthen the card and hide my finishing bits, it is also made from a paper bag which adds another couple of layers. This finished card was not heavy or thick. I had pockets to place special tickets and memorabilia in it too.
You could cut and paste a piece of designer paper to the inside cover of your card instead, or cover whatever you don't want people to see with another embellishment.
I often make card toppers
without adhering them to a card base till I decide to finish my cards. Then I simpley adhere my topper to a card base and automatically have no finishing bits showing.
I hope these ideas help and wish you a happy day of paper crafting.
