This is what it looks like open
and a close up of the inside
This card much simpler than it looks - and to prove it I've put a diagram for the base of the card at the bottom of this post. I actually used up some double sided thin cheap black card for the base to keep the thickness of the finished card down. Usually it's much too flimsy, but with all the extra layers it worked fine this time.
I was pleased with the outside, but I think I may actually like the inside even better! It's difficult to see in the photograph, but I gave the central panel on the front of the card a spritz with stardust finishing spray. This is the first time I've used it and I was very happy with the outcome, it gave the matt vanilla card a light sheen that perfectly complements the sheen of the shimmer card I used to back it.
Can you believe that sentiment is actually a stamp? The french roast ink looks so great against the vanilla card stock.
