Front and Back Tutorial

Last week I said I would use the fence this week with Front & Back images, and so I did! :o)  Last year I had the awesome opportunity to attend a Front & Back class with Bonnie and Kendra! I got lots of great tips on how to use the images.

This is Becky. Isn't she just a cutie pie! Further down I included photos of more cards with Front & Backs I've done.

I stamped Becky onto Cryogen card stock with a Memento black ink pad.   I stamped the fence two times. I colored with Copic Markers first and then cut out all the images.

Next, I planned my placement.  I laid the fence on the front of the card and cut the front of the base card right at the top the fence.  I trimmed the little piece to the right of the fence. I also trimmed the back of the base card.  I don't think the relative that I send this card to will notice that it's slightly smaller than an A2 size greeting card. :o)

I added a smokey blue piece of card stock to the inside (which is also the outside) and stamped the WC limb several times in the corner as if there's a tree over Becky's shoulder.  I used the small grass clump to add some grass under the fence outside and inside.   I adhered the front and back of Becky's head together. NOTE: be sure to trim right up to the line and they will match perfectly.

For final placement. I adhered Becky to the fence checking for placement on the inside and out before pressing down.

 Below are some more cards I made with Front & Back images.
