Frog Reverse Topper
TOMORROW I WILL BE ON ANDREA HAYS' "FEATURED CRAFTER FRIDAY" -PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!!
I made a couple reverse topper cards for the Gina K design gallery this month, they are similar to tent topper cards, but instead of mounting your focal point on the outside of the folded card, you cut into it, so that you image will show inside AND outside(you worked so hard on it, you don't want them rushing to your message inside without appreciating your nice coloring job a little longer, do you??)
First, find the middle of your card. Lay your coluzzle with the center of the track on the middle. Cut just the top half of the circle (or oval)
Add your focal point. Write on the inside. Decorate the outside. The finished card (see above) can be displayed now with the outside showing or with your handwritten message. Easy, right? I used Stickles on the water, and popped up my images on dimensionals. I really like this "good luck" greeting, can be used for so many things: a new venture, expectant mom, etc! Hop on by tomorrow for some Valentine posts! (it might get a little mushy!)
