Angels Landing Inside Out Card and Announcement

Hello Friends!!! I have a "sweet" announcement to make! I was invited to be part of the "Angels Landing" design team for the month of November and December!! Whoohoo! How fun is that? For those of you who are not familiar with "Angels Landing". . .Angels Landing is a digital stamp company! What does that mean for you? Great images and instant gratification!! Yipee!

Today. . .the design team was asked to create an "Inside Out" card. . .meaning design both the outside and the inside of your card. Well, I went to work right away and created a "multi-flap pocket card with insert". I created a tutorial a few weeks ago if you want to try it out!!



I decided to use the Season's Tweeting digi set. The set has such pretty cardinal images. . .I love them! They're perfect for a Christmas card!!! This is the card with front half flap opened to reveal the inner base panel. I colored the image using my Copic Markers and added a bit of Stickles and Crystal Effect to add a little shine and sparkle. I also decided to use the sentiment from the "Marching Band 2" set. I think the sentiment was perfect for this card.


This photo shows the card opened up completely to reveal a pocket with an insert. I think pocket cards with inserts are really fun to receive so I like making them. I printed the cardinal image to the corner of the insert just to make the insert pretty!!!


Be sure to stop by Angels Landing Blog to check out the beautiful cards created by the design team!!! Just a little note before I go. . .I'm sorry I haven't posted teh past few days. . .I haven't been feeling well. . .uggh! Initially, I thought it was my allergies acting up again but I think it's more a cold than my typical allergies. Ugggh!

Anyway. . .I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!!
